San Diego native and indie, alt-pop up-and-coming artist Slush Puppy admirably assembles sad, moody lyricism with anthemic instrumentation and mass produces earworms. The Los Angeles-based producer has a way of soaking each one of his compositions in utter honesty. He found his footings after the triumph of his breakout single “Juliette,” which stockpiled over one million streams on Spotify. The single also found a safe space in Spotify’s Global and U.S New Music Friday, LOREM, and All New Indie, and Apple Music’s New Music Daily, Alt Pop, and Pop Chill playlists.
The singer + songwriter and producer has since opened up a new chapter with his latest single, “Barbie Doll,” via Disruptor Records. Co-produced by Evan Gartner and Pink Slip, the song depicts that we are all not a bunch of cookie cutters and each of us is our own being. Slush Puppy’s vocoder-laced vocals are entrenched with wired synth.
Slush Puppy on the meaning of the new song,“‘Barbie Doll’ is about wanting to be with someone so bad that you are willing to change your entire self and character to keep their attention. I wanted to creatively express what it feels like to overcompensate for being insecure,” He continues sharing on his Instagram page, “hey BARBIE DOLL IS OUT FINALLY!! we hit NEW MUSIC FRIDAY which is a FUCKIN DREAM and I am so grateful for all of ur kind messages and support u have shown me thru all this xoxo go dance around with ur friends and family to the new song 🙂 out now EVERYWHERE”
“Barbie Doll” is the first single to come off of the singer + songwriter’s forthcoming debut EP. “Barbie Doll” follows the success of the singles “Sunroof” and “I Don’t Like Your Friends.” “Juliette,” as previously mentioned, combats the misrepresentative social structure that what we put on social media is who we actually are.
“Barbie Doll” is available on all digital streaming platforms here.
