Worry Dolls - Oliver by Helen Meissner 1 published on 2013-03-02T09:20:10Z Delightful duo, these girls have lovely harmonies and stripped back arrangements in their original songs. See them at Folkstock on 21st September http://www.worrydollsmusic.com/ Biography Two solo singers by nature, Rosie and Zoe met at Paul McCartney’s old school in Liverpool. Bonding initially due to having the same fiery red locks, they decided to join forces and have been playing as Worry Dolls for nearly two years. With a performance at Glastonbury Festival and support slots for Joan Armatrading & Rachel Sermanni already ticked off on their ‘to do’ list, Worry Dolls have been making quick inroads into the London folk scene, self-releasing their first EP of quirky, indie folk in February, as well as a single, Oliver, for boutique label Folkroom Records. Worry Dolls won't sing about love. Not directly, at least. It's their small statement against a worn down lyrical standard that is too often relied on when a writer has nothing new to say. It doesn't need to be groundbreaking, and it doesn't need to take itself too seriously (on 'Oliver' they sing about an infatuation with a West End drag queen), but it needs to be original, and have meaning, for them as much as you. In their short time as a duo, they’ve forged something substantially stronger than a hair colour match. A beautiful and captivating result.
