New single ‘Armchair Psychiatrist’ out October 13th via Roadkill Records
“Sharp-edged guitar lines and pounding drums, there’s a faint edge of the gothic to DOLLS, a sense that they walk on the dark side of the road.” – Clash Magazine
DOLLS‘ own brand of infectious grunge-punk is fuelled by Jade (guitar and vocals) and Bel (drums and vocals). Having spent the last year relentlessly gigging in and around the capital DOLLS are now packing out London venues like the Old Blue Last, Shacklewell Arms & Sebright Arms. The London 2-piece are already being championed by John Kennedy at Radio X and by BBC Introducing and the band have just finished the recording of their debut EP working with Jim Sclavunos whose production credits alongside being a member of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and Grinderman, include The Horrors, The Wytches and Du Blonde.
Their latest cut is a garage-pop anthem with as much sass as it has bite. Duel vocals bounce off each other effortlessly, capturing some of the awesome chemistry these two bring to their raucous live performances, while instruments are given space to weave a laid back grooves.
Following their previously well-received single ‘Audrey’, the project encountered a brief set-back due to both band members injuring their ankles, in separate incidents. Drummer Bel was unable to play during recovery, but with both now fighting fit they’re ready to take the world by storm, doing exactly what they do best.
‘Armchair Psychiatrist’ is released via upcoming DIY label Roadkill Records on October 6th and will be available digitally and on limited edition cassette. The launch party comes in partnership with We Can Di It Promotions and features special guests Projector, Krush Puppies and Gaygirl at The Shacklewell Arms.
