It commences with a soaring female falsetto that smoothly transitions into bluesy, seductive vocals, accompanied by an infectious underlying beat and a guitar riff reminiscent of classical styling. This dynamic blend is expertly executed. The dreamlike quality of the music undergoes a transformation, evolving into a more intense and immersive experience, driven by Chlöe's commanding lead vocals and enriched with subtle yet lush vocal harmonies. While it might not be easy to label "Dog's Life" as simply "enchanting," there's an undeniable allure to Chloë's vocal style that leaves one feeling spellbound or lost in a dream.
