New single ‘Backfire’ is the latest track from Swedish sensation Dotter. She has turned up the tempo from ‘Bulletproof‘ and pivoted slightly from her usual indie pop sound. The track was written and produced alongside long-term collaborator Dino Medanhodzic. Dotter speaking about the single:
“Backfire” is about bad karma, if you do something bad, then you hit it back on yourself. In this case, it’s not about taking action when someone else is trying to push one down. The song is about being strong and showing oneself love and respect, daring to put one’s best first in order to avoid being depressed by people who want a bad one.
The video features plenty of tulle, choreography and enough strobes and lighting changes to *almost* make up for the cancellation of Eurovision 2020. Dotter co-directed the video alongside Keisha Von Arnold and Kristoffer Jansson.
