DOLLY ROCKERS RUSH-RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE DUE TO SCOTT MILLS BREAKFAST SHOW ON RADIO 1.â€˜JE SUIS UNE DOLLYâ€™ IS OUT TODAY!
Hotly tipped girl band the Dolly Rockers have kicked up a storm since they were first championed by Scott Mills at Radio 1 a couple of weeks ago when he played their signature tune, â€˜Je Suis Une Dollyâ€™ on his Drivetime show. Last week, whilst sitting in for Chris Moylesâ€™ Breakfast Show, Scott declared them â€œthe worldâ€™s greatest girl bandâ€ and played the song again, urging his listeners to get in touch and tell him what they thought of it.
Scott’s support, combined with the listeners’ feedback, means that over the weekend the girls decided to rush-release â€˜Je Suis Une Dollyâ€™. And so following Scott Millsâ€™ exclusive on-air announcement this morning on Radio 1â€™s Breakfast Show, Parlophone Records are proud to announce that the Dolly Rockersâ€™ first single is available NOW. Fans just need to log on to their brand new website where they can download â€˜Je Suis Une Dollyâ€™ for FREE!! The track will be available for five days, until midnight on Friday.
Since Dolly Rockers first sprang to the mediaâ€™s attention just a few weeks ago, the reaction has been incredible. Jude Rogers in The Guardian devoted an entire column to them declaring, â€œI love the Dollys â€“ they are what pop really needsâ€¦ [they] bring to the table what the best girl groups always have; oodles and buckets of shambolic funâ€¦ Their off-key vocals remind us of the effervescent magic of Bananarama and their unpolished, cartoonish qualities have the punch of â€˜90s duo Shampooâ€¦ In 2009 they are a good girl group for our times.â€ The Daily Star profiled them on Friday announcing, â€œNot since the Spice Girls have we witnessed feisty girls armed with great pop songs and gobs to matchâ€¦ These witty girls will be a whirlwind of fun pop leaving behind a scattering of fake eyelashes and a devastation of broken hearts.â€
Music Week last week reviewed â€˜Je Suis Une Dollyâ€™ saying â€œAll-girl three-piece the Dolly Rockers are doing their darndest to bring something fresh to the girl band market and â€“shock, horror â€“ appear to be succeedingâ€¦ â€˜Je Suis Une Dollyâ€™ is a cheeky, upbeat pop song that doesnâ€™t take itself too seriously,â€ while Record of the Day claimed Dolly Rockers are â€œset to take on Girls Aloud for the crown of best female pop actâ€. And The Sunâ€™s Bizarre column picked up on the witty lyrics to another track, â€˜Champagne Shirleyâ€™: â€œI reckon thatâ€™s from Chapter One, â€˜How To Get Noticed When Starting Outâ€™ in the manual for girl bands,â€ said Gordon Smart.
The whirlwind that is the Dolly Rockers was in full force last week as they caused chaos on a train en route to Devon for a gloriously entertaining publicity shoot in a miniature village, lit up the streets of Soho when they arrived in style to perform a set at Trannyshack in Madame Jojoâ€™s, did a glamorous photoshoot for a national newspaper, appeared at Students Union Summer Ball, invited a teen magazine into their house and left a number of journalists gob-smacked with their frank, hilarious and at times unprintable interview technique.
Dolly Rockers will follow the release of â€˜Je Suis Une Dollyâ€™ with their first fully commercially-released single on July 27th, details to be announced soon. In the meantime, check out thedollyrockers.com
