Leeds-based dreampop artist Amber Strawbridge, best known as her moniker Bored At Grandmas House, shares the new single “China Doll (Demo)”. It’s a sleek acoustic single that elevates her vocals to a sweet high while hooking you in with its DIY pop. A real chill treat that leaves you wanting a hell of a lot more.
It’s the final preview track to be taken from Leeds label and development organisation Come Play With Me’s forthcoming compilation Side By Side.
“China Doll is about a time where loads of cool things were happening to me like getting signed, my music doing well and achieving things I never thought I could’ve achieved if you’d asked me last year yet I was feeling super low. It’s about feeling not very happy during a time when people would expect you to be happiest. The second verse touches on how I stayed super busy during lockdown as a form of distraction from how I was really feeling. Keeping busy means you don’t really get time to process emotions so it’s a method of avoidance. The track was written and recorded towards the end of lockdown 1. I produced and mixed everything in my room and it features my dad on violin, it was super simple, super quick but I think it’s best when it happens like that!”
