About[edit]

dollys was an indie pop trio from New Brunswick, New Jersey, that formed in 2013. Guitarist and vocalist Jeff Lane, guitarist Michael Mendonez and drummer and vocalist Natalie Newbold played in the group Green Paper, before being joined by bassist and vocalist Erik Kase Romero to form dollys.[1][2] Kase Romero, Lane and Newbold also played together in the group the Humboldts. dollys describes their music as "poppy, harmony filled music that's fun to listen to" and cite musical inspiration from the Beach Boys.[1] They draw comparison to the music of Hop Along, New Pornographers and Girlpool.[3] Most of their recordings are made on tape. Their first release is "Captain Alex," a song described as a "melody-infested ear worm composition of the Kevin Devine-led Bad Books persuasion."[4]

On 9 November 2013, dollys released the six-track EP1, noted for its' "mix of call-and-response vocals, multi-part harmonies, and heavenly oohs and ahhs that echoes the pop smarts of '90s alt-pop staples That Dog."[5] dollys signed with the independent record label Sniffling Indie Kids, in 2015.

Sniffling Indie Kids[edit]

On 19 July 2015, Sniffling Indie Kids released the nine-track album Oh, Please, on vinyl and compact disc. The record is described as "fey indie-pop delivered with reverb and charm."[6] It is the last to feature Mendonez. Their second full-length album, entitled low year, was released on 2 March 2016. It was listed No. 1 in The Top 10 Albums of 2016 by Bob Makin in The Aquarian Weekly.[7] They performed at the 2016 North Jersey Indie Rock Festival.[8] For the 2017 compilation Mint 400 Records Presents Nirvana In Utero, dollys contribute the song "tourette's." Music journalist Bob Makin notes of a 2017 performance, "they are phenomenal. Once again, they stole the show with their stirring mix of pretty pop and pained punk," adding that "vocalist-drummer Natalie Newbold is without question one of the most exciting performers in music today."[9]

dollys third album, entitledtense, was released on 21 July 2017.
