“Dollhouse” is without doubt, an EP stuffed full of fantastic singing and good musicianship. But more than this, it is an EP that has a lot to say about the life experiences of Aditi Iyer.
While Aditi Iyer might be new to the indie music scene, she does sound like an artist who has gathered everything she’s learned on the journey and focused it here. You can hear it in the poise of her songwriting and the deftness with which she breathes life into her songs with her performance. She has poured her heart out into her songs and it’s easy to hear that.
With “Dollhouse”, Aditi Iyer has delivered a set of songs that sound mature, earnest, intelligent and inspired. The four tracks, for all their differing styles, have hit upon something that has a rare sparkle to it. A deceptively simple yet beautiful EP.
