The single oozes with attitude from the offset as frontman Ralph’s distinctively colloquial vocal style is able to soar effortlessly over distorted guitar twangs and woozy synths.
Reminiscent of the likes of Super Furry Animals and Pulp, Ralph of London pay homage to their Brit-pop past, whilst also maintaining their own unique style and witty charm throughout.
Talking about the single, Ralph explained that it’s: “about a king falling in love with somebody completely unattainable and being driven to madness under the shadow of a fading illusion”.
Killer psyche innuendos, transverse your inklings and deliver you to that foot of that mountain. Now, you have to climb a bit more, for the ecstasy you’d always desired.
‘Dotty’ gives you the key. Let’s smile. Let’s dance. Let’s climb.
