Doja Cat returns today, emerging from the wake of “So High” with the dreamy haze of “Trauma” and “Golden.” Invoking SZA and the wavy beats of XXYYXX, Doja Cat’s signature pitch-shifted vocals are front and center for both tracks.
It’s her first release since last year’s “PURRR” EP. There’s some more experimental production this time around, provided by The AQuaDice and YE ALI. Doja Cat has room to prowl on the beat, weaving in some impressive vocal lines: try not to get the chorus from “Trauma” stuck in your head. Go ahead, try. Stream “Golden” and “Trauma” below:
