NYC dream-pop producer Dominique first made waves in 2016 with her debut Dominique EP. Her ethereal voice and cyclical beats seduced listeners and solidified a blossoming starting point for this young artist. With her new track "Use Me," Dominique explores a new and enticing side of her artistry. She drops the dreamy elements of her previous releases and trades them in for heavy bass lines. Dominique also sharpens her songwriting skills in "Use Me" to produce a track that exudes passion, anger, and desperation in an honest fashion. All of these details hint towards Dominique pursuing a fresh direction, but one that's equally as alluring as her debut.
Intrigued by the story behind "Use Me," we asked Dominique to elaborate on what inspired her to write this tune,
"Use Me" is a track about being so hopelessly in love with someone that you’d do anything and everything just to be around them. I wrote it when I was so into somebody that I was willing to focus all my time and energy on them. Their goals became my goals, and even though my feelings weren't reciprocated, I still was willing to do anything at all for them. It was a super desperate point in my life and all I could really do to deal with it was make a song about it.
Although the vibe of the song feels more upbeat and happy, it’s one of the saddest songs I’ve ever written. The song itself feels like a turning point in my artistic direction as most of my life has changed since I put out my EP in December. The music I’m writing and the songs I’m producing sound quite different from my older material and I feel like I’m evolving as an artist. I’m also pursuing different projects in my career, like producing for other artists. "Use Me" details one of my first experiences doing so.
