With a thirst for straight up, no nonsense rock’ n ‘roll, Melbourne’s, The Cherry Dolls are excited to announce the lead single ‘Wasted’ from their forthcoming EP, Lone Palm, recorded on their recent adventures in the US. The post-punk inspired five-piece—consisting of vocalist Joshua Aubry, dual guitarists, Jacob Kagan (Dustin Tebbutt) & Jim Stirton, bassist Brendan West and drummer, Thomas van der Vliet (Young Hysteria) formed in 2014. Since then they have sold out a succession of club venues and garnered festival slots, quickly establishing themselves as an exhilarating tour de force.
‘Wasted’ follows on from previous year’s single, ‘The Last Time’ which garnered airplay on Triple J and community radio. On this new offering, the band have teamed up with L.A producer, Dan Horne (Cass McCombs, Ben Kweller) and mix engineer, Chris ‘Frenchie’ Smith (The Darkness, Dandy Warhols, Jet) to deliver a track gleaming with infectious joy. Underscoring its hedonistic reference, ‘Wasted’ is ultimately a song about, innocence in entertaining adolescent fashion.
Having supported the likes of Palma Violets (UK) British India, DZ Deathrays and Strand of Oaks (USA), This release continues to build the reputation of The Cherry Dolls as a band renowned for riveting live shows.
