dodie has today released her new EP Hot Mess. It features the previously unveiled tracks ‘Got Weird’ and the title song, as well as a new single, ‘Lonely Bones’. Listen to it and stream the full EP below.
“Lockdown 2020 had me spending a lot of time alone, dabbling in dissociation, depression and making furious promises to make sure life would be different soon,” dodie said of ‘Lonely Bones’ in a press release. “I felt feral! Manic, running on absolute fumes. I loved the idea of writing a gang vocal section that sounds like it should eventually be sung amongst friends and drinks and good vibes – but written from a much lonelier past.”
“Hot Mess is exactly that – a steaming, conflicting pile of raw ideas and feelings; heavy confessions, manic patches matched with seemingly stable moments of realisation and acceptance, painted with flickers of dissociated spiraling,” they added of the EP. “I am lost! I am confused but trying, and I accept myself and hate myself simultaneously while doing so.”
Hot Mess follows dodie’s debut album, 2021’s Build a Problem.
