Having spent the last year relentlessly gigging in and around the capital, packing out venues and being heavily championed by Radio X & BBC Introducing, Dolls have spent the summer working with Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds / Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos on their new “Pop The Bubble EP”.
The 2-piece, comprising Jade (guitar and vocals) and Bel (drums and vocals), can today reveal new single ‘Pink Bones’. A riotous example of their infectious grunge-punk, you can give it a spin below:
‘Pink Bones’ was one of the first songs they wrote together. When asked about the meaning behind it Bel explains “I believe this song is like one of those abstract paintings, it can mean many different things to whoever listens to it; and we like keeping it that way. Otherwise it ruins how far your imagination can go!”
The “Pop The Bubble EP”, set for release in September 2018, marked the first time the band have worked with producer Jim Sclavunos. His production credits include The Horrors, The Wytches and Du Blonde. The result is 4 garage-pop anthems with as much sass as they have bite. Duel vocals bounce off each other effortlessly, capturing some of the awesome chemistry these two bring to their raucous live performances.
The “Pop The Bubble EP” will be released by iconic soundtrack labels Mondo/Death Waltz. It’ll be available on a beautiful limited edition multi-coloured and etched vinyl LP and digital. The band launch the EP at Rough Trade East with an instore show on Monday 24th September.
Sept 24 – Rough Trade East, London
Nov 4 – The Underworld, London
