Maddie Ross - Baby Doll

Easily one of our favorite newcomers of 2016 is 23-year-old Los Angeles-based artist Maddie Ross, who first came to our attention earlier this year with her alt-pop anthem "Make Me A Safe Place" and again with her follow-up "Cruel Is The Love". Now she returns with quite possibly her sassiest and most hard-hitting offering to date called "Baby Doll" , which once again sees her teaming up with Wolfy on production duties and serves as the third and final single to be lifted from her sophomore EP, Making Out Is Easy.

Speaking on the track, Maddie says:

"'Baby Doll' feels more relevant now in the wake of the election than it did when I originally wrote it. It's about how sometimes sexism feels endless, but right now girls are not willing to go back to a time when we weren't allowed to speak up. It's playful and optimistic, but it's also about the expectations that I (and we) grew up with, and how empowering it was to break out of that mold. It's a fuck you to anybody who wants us to be silent and conform."

Listen to "Baby Doll" below.
