Doolie releases new single, ‘Only For A Night’

Her first single of 2020

Gold Coast singer-songwriter Doolie has released her new single, ‘Only For A Night’.

The song, which arrived today (March 5), was produced by Sydney future bass musician Moonbase. In a press statement, Doolie said the track was “written about the limited time you have to make a decision about someone when you connect on a night out”.

“The chorus was actually the first thing I wrote,” she said. “Moonbase showed me the track and it just came out, like a full-on word [vomit]. Moonbase is such an amazing producer and also just a super fun and genuine guy.”

Moonbase echoed Doolie’s sentiment, saying he felt like he “had to collaborate” with Doolie after hearing her voice on triple J Unearthed.

“She’s a creative powerhouse and super down-to-earth too, so ‘Only For A Night’ came together really effortlessly,” he said.

“The track hangs somewhere between the realms of energetic 2-step and soulful quietude – a perfect after-hours vibe.”


‘Only For A Night’ marks Doolie’s first release in 2020. It follows a string of singles from last year, including ‘Slow Crawl’, ‘Attention’ with China Roses and ‘2:20’, featuring Charlie Threads.

Doolie will give ‘Only For A Night’ its live debut at Sydney mental health awareness festival Torch Fest, on Saturday (April 4). Find more information about the event here.
