Premiere: Savage (Live in Studio) by Quintessential Doll
It can be a hit or miss when two creative worlds collide. Salvador Dali and his venture into the culinary realm of cookbooks: hit. Paris Hilton’s 2006 smash hit Stars Are Blind: huge, huge miss. Thankfully, producer, multi-instrumentalist, absolute powerhouse of a little woman and master of whimsical folk-electronica, Steph Linsdell A.K.A Quintessential Doll in collaboration with Swedish fashion designer, Emelie Svensson, present their daring, individualistic interplay between two art forms and, let me tell you, it’s a hit.
The live studio version of Savages, tackles societal norms and fights for feminist culture through repeatedly singing, “my my beauty will never be yours,” to a chilling mix of pointed synth lines, industrialised beats, and the attack of a delay-riddled violin. The video itself is a gritty performance of the tense music soundscape created by Quintessential Doll and parallels the sporadic nature of the breakdowns in the editing style; solely in black and white and flash edits reminiscent of an Alfred Hitchcock film. Quintessential Doll showcases a piece from Svensson’s latest Luminous in Black collection; a jacket constructed purely from recycled materials. Meeting via Instagram, a sentiment which embodies the fierce DIY nature, embodiment and tendency’s of both artists.
With a QMA under her belt and a rapidly expanding profile, Quintessential Doll is definitely one to keep on your artist radar.
