Worry Dolls met at Paul McCartney’s school of music in Liverpool. Bonding initially due to having the same fiery red locks, what sets them apart is their tongue-in-cheek, honest lyrics and their refusal to sing “cliché love songs”.
Described by Bob Harris as “a warm and infectious sound”, Worry Dolls’ music is packed full of sublime harmonies, atop a plethora of varied instruments. Many will have seen them performing at Glastonbury Festival, supporting Joan Armatrading on tour, or heard their music played on Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music.
With two EPs already under their belt, Worry Dolls recently returned from Nashville, where they recorded their debut album with producer Neilson Hubbard (Matthew Perryman Jones), to be released in 2016. Since their first EP, Worry Dolls’ sound has grown as their influences shifted towards the rootsier sounds of Nashville & the Appalachian mountains – still with a strong UK stamp. In their time together as a duo, they’ve forged something substantially stronger than a hair colour match. A beautiful and captivating result.
