Today XS Noize is pleased to premiere the video of ‘Eggshells’ by Dolls from their second EP ‘Eggshells’. Dolls are a 2-piece, comprising Jade (guitar and vocals) and Bel (drums and vocals). The EP was produced and mixed by Margo Broom at Hermitage Studio Works in North London.
Jade explains that the ‘Eggshells EP’ is more auto-biographical than Dolls have ever been in the past and that it is “about the struggles that we have faced in our 20’s. Losing friends, creepy men, the strive for perfectionism and day-to-day anxiety. We have written about what we feel is really important as we get older. Musically we have evolved with this EP and although the gritty garage rock is still there we’ve broadened our sound with synths, percussion and multiple vocal layers.”
The “Eggshells EP”, was released on 20th June 2020 as part of Love Record Stores Day.
“Graham Humphrey designed the artwork for the Eggshells EP, we loved the artwork so much we thought it would be a great idea to get it animated for the video of the EP’s title track. One of my favourite things about the record is that inside there is a pullout card of two dress-up dolls. It reminds me of my childhood and I think it is such a fun feature. I’m so glad that these two dolls get their time to shine in the video! We think Thomas Comery did an amazing job at making Graham’s artwork come to life.”
