Melanie Martinez – Dollhouse (Jai Wolf Remix)

melanie martinezWe had no idea who Melanie Martinez was until we heard this track. A quick Google however, and it turns out she’s a graduate of The Voice USA, having been coached by Adam Levine. In that sense ‘Dollhouse’ is a very surprising record considering the media’s obsession with the ‘manufactured’ nature of pop music. ‘Dollhouse’ is deep – documenting a dysfunctional family trapped within the mask of social norms. Whilst I’m not a huge fan of the original, which is a bit boring, Jai Wolf’s remix brings out a certain depressive nature to the lyrics, making the listener engage more with the track. So, it’s not the happiest of tunes, but something worth a listen.

Check it out.
