Dottie Andersson - 'Heavy Objects'

  • 2 min read

Dottie Andersson is a songwriter from Småland, Sweden, and picture-perfect, smooth pop is the opposite of what she stands for.

Her weekday breakfast consists of a large can of Monster-Energy, which is a good example for the energy she creates in her songs: To not take yourself too seriously, to have a grand plan, to do everything differently compared to a mere mortal.In her lyrics, Dottie describes pitfalls alternating with high highs turning life into a rollercoaster. Always online, never less than fifteen stories on Instagram, always ironic while emotions are always around the next corner.

Dottie Andersson’s debut single 'Heavy Objects' is a song about letting go of the emotions and situations that drag you down. It conveys sweet melancholy, charming cheekiness and a hint of stubbornness, all held together by her pin sharp attitude. A little bit of everything that Dottie stands for.

'Heavy Objects' is the first of a whole string of songs recorded with producer Martin Baumgartner in Hamburg since 2020. It was mixed in Los Angeles by Jeff Fettig (Caroline Polachek, Maggie Rogers, Solange) and mastered in New York by Joe Lambert (Sofi Tukker, Daughter, Moby). The accompanying video was filmed as a spontaneous one-take by photographer Nic Schoppet.

Dottie grew up in a musical family, studied drums and was part of the band Ason, alongside her three younger sisters, playing support shows for Milow and Matt Simons among numerous festival shows. Now, she has found her own sound, influenced by acts like Veronica Maggio, Bon Iver, Caroline Polachek or Phoebe Bridgers and displaying real attitude and a nuanced sense for pop melodies among electronic and indie elements. A sound that holds the potential of captivating Indie-Nerds and Pop-Maniacs alike.

Dottie shares, “It's finally the music I wanna make, music that comes directly from my Swedish veins and that is authentically me. This first EP is like breaking loose from a kind of chain that's been holding me the past couple of years.”
