DOOLIE - Slow Crawl

12 Dec 2019



Rising 21-year-old Gold Coast singer-songwriter DOOLIE (Doolie Shadforth) today delivers her next instalment of potent electronic-pop with ‘Slow Crawl’, out now via etcetc Music. With Sydney producer Cam Nacson (CXLOE, Kota Banks, MOZA) lending his craft, ‘Slow Crawl’ is another step forward in the progressive musical realm of DOOLIE.  

Taking you on a familiar journey of relationship growing pains through seductive production and alluring vocals, ‘Slow Crawl’ is “a very empowering song,” expresses DOOLIE. “It’s about one person breaking free from a relationship while their partner slowly realises how they’ve hurt them.” 

Drawing inspiration from personal observations, ‘Slow Crawl’ reflects on a situation many people will relate to. “I feel like a lot of us allow ourselves to be treated like trash to make another person more comfortable, so this is a song for all of us.” 

Joining forces with Cam Nacson allowed a shared vision to come to life. “We wanted that empty yet bold opening to then really emphasise the pre-chorus,” explains DOOLIE, “his production contrasts so well with my lyrics to create that empowering mood throughout the song.” 

‘Slow Crawl’ caps off a notable year for DOOLIE whose sharp yet playful lyrics have struck a chord with audiences both locally and internationally, delivering a fresh blend of mid-tempo pop/R&B-style productions. Quickly developing an impressive body of work, the past two years have seen DOOLIE collaborating on originals with Charlie Threads, China Roses, XMPLA and GXNXVS, as well as featuring on releases from Paces and POOLCLVB. Her impressive live performance has further established her presence, seeing her take the stage at festivals like Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival and Big Pineapple.  

With her most recent feature on LO’99’s ‘Stay High’ hitting #1 on the ARIA Club chart, gaining support from the likes of dance-world heavyweights Martin Garrix, Tiesto, and Hardwell, a key performance at BIGSOUND, garnering over half a million collective Spotify streams, and ongoing support from triple j and triple j Unearthed, DOOLIE has rapidly cemented a reputation as ‘one to watch’ among the Australian and international music scene.  

Don’t miss DOOLIE performing at the mental health awareness festival Torch Fest at Sydney’s Factory Theatre on April 4, 2020.
