At the end of June Dolls released their long-awaited second EP ‘Eggshells’ exclusively as part of the Love Record Stores.  It was once again released with iconic soundtrack labels Mondo/Death Waltz on a beautiful limited edition multi-coloured and etched vinyl LP and digital.

Today they have released a video to accompany lead single ‘Eggshells’.  Talking about the video Jade explains 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.”

The 2-piece, comprising Jade (guitar and vocals) and Bel (drums and vocals) packed out Rough Trade East in London to launch their first EP ‘Pop The Bubble’, however in current circumstances will be operating solely online for this release, in part because Jade is in home town of London and Bel is back in Spain. The EP was produced and mixed by Margo Broom at Hermitage Studio Works in North London and the first track to urace from the session is the EP’s title track ‘Eggshells’

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.”

Record stores are suffering right now and this event is a great way for the music community to come together safely  & without worry, celebrate music culture and help stores through a difficult finical time”.
