Canadian bedroom popstar Dee Holt returns in style with 'Better'

Undoubtedly one of Canada's most exciting new prospects is Dee Holt who exploded in 2022 with a succession of singles and an EP. Some of those tracks leant on her R&B influence with rich and crisp guitar lines leading a stripped back sound. They balanced playful urban sounds reminiscent of early Lily Allen with more intimate, layered harmonies that demonstarte her technical ability. However, her latest release 'Better' has done away with the gentle approach and is a straight up pop banger!

The moody warmth of Dee's vocals mixed with the thick beat instantly rings of Billie Eilish as it radiates an infectious swagger. Each couple of lines offer a new, nuanced melody that draws you in before switching up to another, equally memorable vocal hook and it is this constant barrage of earworming vocal melodies that makes you want to listen again and again and again! The chorus lives up to the same high standards, delivering an understated yet insanely catchy hook that becomes more and more hypnotic each time you hear it. Vocal flair and audible attitude is sin abundance while the thick production elevates the track's dance worthy quality. Dee Holt's talent was never in doubt but 'Better' could be a game changer!
