The words: ‘apocalyptic glamour’, are the only words to describe DOLLS’ dark and dirty pop bubblegum sound. The inimitable sound of the band and lead singer, Nikki Awesome reeks of a cool, effortless style that has already drawn intrigue from the likes of New Order, Bloc Party, The Killers, The Deftones, and many, many more since exploding on to the scene in London (after parting ways with Warner Music Canada).
Earlier last year, you may have read my style Q&A with the indie artist that unearthed her cool, raw, candy-girl style that’s effortlessly thrown together by a girl who knows exactly what her style is, and exactly what she wants to wear. But what’s the latest for DOLLS? At the top of the list, it’s got to be the DOLLS’ soundtrack for Rimmel London’s ‘Moisture Wear Lipstick’ campaign. Having your music showcased on a national advertising campaign for one MASSIVE brand is pretty much a dream for any artist – especially when the likes of Georgia May Jagger is fronting the campaign – for DOLLS it’s a FULL-BLOWN reality. DOLLS’ guest spot on COINS’ explosive electro track On Your Lips was an awesome new twist for Rimmel – but made for one HELL of an advert.
And what’s NEXT? Tomorrow (February 14th 2014) the recording artist is launching her brand-spanking new single, Limited Ltd. It’s ‘a catchy synthpop track with bitter bubblegum vocals’ – just in time to celebrate with those who are anti-Valentine’s Day. Alongside this DOLLS’ has created a series of six Valentine’s Day cards from the video’s stills – ‘ranging from sexy, to sulky, to downright psychotic.’
Limited Ltd. is available on iTunes, and DOLLS’ Valentine’s Day cards can be downloaded from Dollsxx.com.
