Dominique – Payup

Bitter, clever, and biting, Dominique’s “Payup” is dark pop at its finest! Opening with detuned tonal percussion and minimal production, Dominque’s voice cuts through with a disquieting airy clarity.

A spoken section breaks into an awesome pre-chorus that builds with crowd vocals calling “I did all that” before dropping into a gritty anti-chorus that pulses with a mellow energy. The songwriting is clever and clear that manages to be both sincerely earnest and tongue-in-cheek.

Featuring on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, it’s clear Dominique is carving out space for her unique sound and I can’t wait to hear what comes next!
