Katie Jones reviews dodie’s latest single
Coming from the success of her previous single ‘Guiltless’, the indie-pop artist’s latest single came out with a lot of love from her fans. Her signature light and airy vocals are joined by a crisper tone as she, at times, almost spits out her sharp lyrics.
