"Dollhouse" is the debut extended play (EP) by Melanie Martinez. It was released on May 19th, 2014 as her first official release.

Background

The EP had a tour called Dollhouse Tour centered around it, along with two extra legs of the tour added on to it as well.

Theme

The EP is a love story (with the exception of Dollhouse) that doesn't turn out quite right. It is disguised in different themes, such as Carousel using a carnival and carousel to show the state of feeling in love with someone and being trapped in a one-sided relationship, and trying to grab them, but never reaching them in the end. Dead To Me is the aftermath of Carousel, showing Melanie trying to eliminate that person from her life, by killing them in her mind. Bittersweet Tragedy sums up the whole relationship and EP, since the relationship was bittersweet and there were moments where Melanie was only focusing on the 'sweet' parts, not realizing how sour most of it was.

Vinyl

There is a limited edition vinyl version of the EP that was released for "Record Store Day". It is colored half pastel pink, half baby blue and the cover has pictures of paper houses on it. It comes with a digital download of the EP. It was also available for sale on Melanie's website. The design of the vinyl is self-described by Melanie as "a light blue cookie dipped in strawberry frosting".
