Dolls have announced their long-awaited second EP ‘Eggshells’ will be exclusively released as part of the Love Record Stores event on Saturday June 20th. Again released with iconic soundtrack labels Mondo/Death Waltz on a beautiful limited edition multi-coloured and etched vinyl LP and digital.
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 holed up back in Spain. The EP was produced and mixed by Margo Broom at Hermitage Studio Works in North London and the first track to surface from the session is the EP’s title track ‘Eggshells’.
Jade explains that the ‘Eggshells EP’ finds Dolls more auto-biographical than they 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 too and although the gritty garage rock is still there we’ve broadened our sound with synths, percussion and more vocal layers.”
The “Eggshells EP”, set for release on 20th June 2020 as part of Love Record Stores Day which sees the music industry coming together aiming to get music-lovers to support their favourite independent record stores by shopping online on June 20th. Exclusive and limited edition vinyl releases from a range of artists and labels will be made available to purchase on the websites of various record stores, as well as Dolls’ EP, releases from the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Caribou, Belle and Sebastian, Beach House, New Order, Jungle and John Grant will all be available to buy online on June 20.

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