Toronto's Kalila Badali is an alt-folk/art-pop singer-songwriter and psychotherapist. In a press release for her latest single, she describes her music as "... an ethereal balance between witchy folk and danceable (yet moody) pop." That description nails "Dotty Mae." "Dotty Mae" is the kind of alt-folk song that has a very witchy vibe to it along with strong pop elements. It creates this great dichotomy where you have a song that is quite dark and moody along with an upbeat element that makes you want to move along to it. This is a fascinating and oddly hypnotic song that is going to suck you in and refuse to leave for quite some time.
