and How Linda Perry inspired the new record, ‘28 Days in the Valley’

Via their official press release; Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Dorothy have released the new track “Flawless”, the Linda Perry produced, first single from their forthcoming sophomore album 28 Days in the Valley, out March 9th. It’s a vulnerable message that begins with heartbreak and ends as a vindicated feel good anthem of self-love.

Frontwoman, Dorothy Martin shares how Linda Perry influenced her passion-filled songwriting on the new record.

Dorothy Martin:

(On “Flawless”): It’s about an ex who really did a number on me. This one came fast to me. It was very subconscious… like I’m channeling them. Linda Perry pulled the lightness out of me, both personally and musically. This record is definitely still bold, but it’s happier. It’s kind of like the butterfly coming out of the cocoon.

(On writing the new record): This was a spiritual journey and very healing, and because of that it’s an unapologetically honest record. Somehow Linda [Perry] knew I had more to give as a singer and writer. I used to hide behind the tough girl sound, but she taught me that there is power in my vulnerability and that’s what you get on this record.
