“Barbie Doll” is out via Disruptor Records
LA-based singer-songwriter/producer Slush Puppy returns with a sleek new track, “Barbie Doll,” the latest off his forthcoming debut EP. Co-produced by Evan Gartner and Pink Slip, the catchy earworm follows the rising 20-year-old’s breakout single “Juliette,” which has surpassed over one million streams on Spotify alone after landing multiple editorial playlists.
Slush Puppy always manages to tell a compelling narrative through his lyrics and production, and “Barbie Doll” is no exception. The words are raw, twisted, and thoughtfully crafted to evoke a visceral reaction that’ll have you hooked. While the song’s throttling indie-pop production makes this the perfect amp-up or summer playlist song.
At just 20 years old, Slush Puppy continues to contribute to an evolving landscape of pop through his popular singles “I Don’t Like Your Friends” and “Sunroof,” showcasing his ability to fuse sadder lyrics with happy, upbeat instrumentals. His carefree tone, accompanied by complementary melodies, creates a sincere connection between his music and listeners.
On his new single, Slush Puppy shares, “‘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.” Listen below and see more on Soundazed.
