If you’re “feeling good – just worried about everyone else” then fear not; London duo Dolls have written a song to soothe your generous, anxious heart. Their new single ‘Armchair Psychiatrist’ is a four minute therapeutic offering of slow, snaking guitar riffs and laid-back drums that will appeal to lovers of catchy garage rock.
Jade (vocals/guitar) and Bel (drums/vocals) have been championed by the likes of John Kennedy at Radio X and BBC Introducing, and the pair have just finished recording their debut EP 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. It looks like Dolls are in good company, and we can’t wait to hear what they come up with next.
‘Armchair Psychiatrist’ will be released via DIY label Roadkill Records on October 6th, and will be available on limited edition cassette as well as a digital download. To celebrate the launch of the new single, Roadkill Records are partnering up with We Can Do It Promotions for a free gig at The Shacklewell Arms on the single’s release date. There will be a headline performance from Dolls, as well as supporting sets from Projector, Krush Puppies and Gaygirl (event info here).
