MELANIE MARTINEZ OPENS HER “DOLLHOUSE”; CELEBRATED SINGER/SONGWRITER SETS DEBUT EP, SHOWCASED BY HAUNTING NEW SINGLE, “DOLLHOUSE”; US TOUR GETS UNDERWAY JUNE 4th IN PHILADELPHIA, PA; “THE DOLLHOUSE EP” ARRIVES ON MAY 20TH

Atlantic Records has announced the debut release from acclaimed singer/songwriter Melanie Martinez. “THE DOLLHOUSE EP” arrives on May 20th and is highlighted by the stunning new single, “Dollhouse,” which is available now on the iTunes Store (itunes.apple.com/us/album/dollhouse-single/id813791270). In addition, the track’s compelling companion video is fast approaching 1 million individual views at Martinez’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/Melmartinezx3.  Co-written by Martinez with GRAMMY® Award-nominated tunesmiths Kinetics & One Love (B.o.B, Neon Hitch), the dark pop dream of “Dollhouse” has already earned an array of ecstatic critical notices.

Having spent much of 2013 selling out clubs across the country, Martinez will celebrate “THE DOLLHOUSE EP” with her biggest national tour to date, kicking off June 4th at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s World Café and continuing through the end of June (see attached itinerary). Additional live dates will be announced soon –please see www.facebook.com/melaniemartinezmusic for updates.

Martinez – who is also currently hard at work finishing her eagerly awaited debut album alongside such collaborators as Robopop (Jessie J, Lana Del Rey) and the aforementioned Kinetics & One Love – has been hailed as a provocative singer, songwriter, and visual presence. The song “positions Martinez as an American version of Lorde,” writes Newsday. “(Martinez) sings about a picture-perfect family that is much more troubled under the surface,” declared Us Weekly, noting that Martinez – a former contestant on NBC’s smash reality singing competition series, The Voice – “might be the show’s first real breakout star.” The Long Island, New York-native captured the country’s imagination with her arresting performances on the highly rated Fall 2012 season of NBC’s The Voice, driving her unique renditions of “Too Close” and “Seven Nation Army” to top 5 sales on the iTunes Store. In addition, Martinez’ rendition of “Toxic” lit YouTube on fire, earning more than 6 million individual page views.

    Sure, you've probably heard of a boy named Sue, but what about a girl named Timothy? The distinctive female forename happens to belong to the equally unique singer of Portland-based indie-pop band Dresses. Comprised of Timothy Heller (vocals/ukulele/piano) and Jared Ryan Maldonado (vocals/guitar), the frock-rock duo have been playing music together since January 2012 and are eagerly anticipating the release of their SideOneDummy debut album, Sun Shy, digitally on September 3 and physically on October 22, 2013.

    Though Heller and Maldonado, both 21, lived only two miles away from each other in Stumptown, it wasn't until discovering they had a bunch of mutual friends in common online that they decided to connect and try to write music together. "She was coming over one day after school and I was really nervous because I had nothing to work on. I had never written with someone else," says Maldonado, remembering the first IRL encounter he had with Heller. "As she was actually getting off the bus, I wrote the first few lines of 'Blew My Mind.' She came in, I played it for her and she loved it."

    Not only is "Blew My Mind" the first song Dresses ever wrote together, but it's also the first single off Sun Shy and perfectly summarizes what the band is all about, musically: Sunny melodies and dynamic guitars with a lyrical undercurrent forced by bruised hearts and broken dreams. Whether listening to "Back To Life," a playful tale of new love, or "Tell A Lie," a refined romp about making every moment count, Heller and Maldonado are able to artfully balance introspection with affection. In fact, writing about love comes easy to the couple, which happens to be dating in real life.

    "It's nice because we enjoy spending time together and I love listening to what she writes and sings," says Maldonado of the pair's personal and professional partnership. Adds Heller, "It makes things really easy, nice and comforting. Showing music you're working on to others can be difficult, but it's a lot easier to show Jared something personal I wrote because we're so close." For now, though, the lovebirds are concentrating on the release of Sun Shy and sharing the beautiful music they make together.
