The video for DoLL portrays an ethereal dreamlike world paired with dark heavy production elements to deliver a fierce pop journey questioning,

A rhetorical exposition, the song illuminates and breaks down a feminine stereotype faced throughout interpersonal relationships and society at large. The highly artistic music video was created by a 95% female team and modernizes iconic female archetypes throughout history such as Swan Lake, Mary Had A Little Lamb, Virgin Mary, Medusa, Yoko Ono Cut Piece, and more.

DoLL is Manser’s biggest statement piece and personal song yet, calling out toxic masculinity while breaking down feminine stereotypes.

DoLL was first written as a poem after an ex told me while I was intoxicated at a Halloween party that he had cheated on me with my roommate. I wanted to release this notion that I was always hoping I would be a good enough woman for him or good enough for any of my past partners that had hurt me or left me, … I have a song that fires me up and will forever remind me that I am good enough.”

In support of DoLL, Manser is embarking on a four-date West Coast tour, coheadlining with Claire George.
