How did the band form?

I took some songs into class to play and Olivier approached me afterwards to ask if I needed anyone for a band… of course I said yes! Then Matt and Chris were friends of friends who were introduced when we were looking for more members…

Who came up with the name Doll & The Kicks?

The first gig I ever attended was The Foo Fighters colour and the shape tour when I was a little girl … I was hooked! My favourite song from that album is the little acoustic ditty ‘Doll’ so that’s why I called myself Doll….. then the Kicks came when the boys joined me…

How would you best describe your sound?

Danceable Indie Rock music.

What are your musical influences?

We all have wide and differing musical tastes and I think that is an advantage as DATK try and bring elements of everything we love into what we do.

What have been the bands highlights so far?

Getting to visit so many countries on our first ever tour was pretty incredible… I spent my birthday drinking 80% absinthe in St Petersburg! Playing prestigious venues in the UK like The Royal Albert Hall and Brixton Academy is obviously a mile stone for any band and even more so considering we are unsigned.

How did touring with Morrissey change your lives?

It made us into a better band, a different band. It meant we were able to do what we loved full time….

What's the funniest or craziest thing that happened to you while on tour?

We have done a lot of couch surfing…staying with complete strangers who offer us their home and we have met lots of lovely people as well as some very strange ones! One guy kept trying to come into my room to offer me blankets after I went to bed early (which he wasn’t happy about) because he was constantly talking about sex…..

You're currently on tour promoting your new single. How's it going?

Romania is the last date on our tour and is has gone really well. Much better than expected and better than the last tour so I guess we’re pretty happy.

Where were you best received by the crowds?

Definitely Germany whilst on the Morrissey tour but on our own tour this time around all over mainland Europe was packed… London of course!



Cum s-a format trupa?

Am cantat cateva piese de-ale mele la un curs (n.r. la facultate) si Olivier m-a cautat dupa sa ma intrebe daca nu vreau sa formez o trupa... desigur ca am zis da! Matt si Chris sunt prieteni de-ai unor prieteni pe care i-am cunoscut atunci cand ne cautam membri noi.

Cine a propus numele Doll and The Kicks?

Primul concert la care am fost a fost unul The Foo Fighters, facea parte din turneul lor de promovare a albumului The Colour and the Shape. M-au cucerit si am inceput sa-mi zic Doll pentru ca piesa mea preferata de pe acel album este "Doll"... baietii au adus partea cu the Kicks.

Cum v-ati descrie stilul muzical?

Muzica indie rock dansabila.

Ce influente muzicale aveti?

Fiecare dintre noi asculta genuri muzicale diferite si cred ca asta reprezinta un avantaj pentru trupa pentru ca astfel putem sa folosim toate elementele care ne plac in muzica pe care o facem.

Care au fost cele mai tari momente prin care ati trecut pana acum?

Este incredibil ca am avut ocazia sa vizitam atat de multe tari in cadrul primului nostru turneu. De ziua mea am baut absinth cu 80% concentratie de alcool! Si faptul ca am ajuns sa cantam in sali prestigioase din UK precum The Royal Albert Hall si Brixton Academy in ciuda faptului ca nu avem un contract cu vreo casa de discuri.

Cum s-au schimbat vietile voastre dupa ce ati fost in turneu cu Morrissey?

Ne-a transformat intr-o trupa mai buna, una diferita. Acum putem face ce ne place tot timpul...

Care este cea mai amuzanta sau mai nebuneasca intamplare din turneu?

Am avut ocazia sa intalnit foarte multi oameni foarte draguti, dar si unii foarte ciudati, pentru ca in turneu am ales sa facem couch surfing. Intr-o seara cand m-am culcat mai devreme, un tip tot incerca sa intre in camera mea sa-mi ofere paturi. Vorbea tot timpul despre sex si nu cred ca i-a cazut prea bine nereusita...

Momentan sunteti in turneul de promovare a noului vostru single. Cum merg lucrurile?

Pana acum a mers foarte bine, chiar mai bine decat ne asteptam si decat primul nostru turneu asa ca suntem foarte fericiti. Romania va fi ultima tara in care ajungem in acest turneu.

In ce tara ati fost primiti cel mai bine de public?

Cu siguranta in Germania, atat in turneul de acum, cat si in cel cu Morrissey in toate locurile unde am cantat era plin... la fel si in Londra!

Bonus: Daca va plac Doll and The Kicks, avem un concurs la care punem la bataie 2 invitatii duble la concertul lor de pe 6 noiembrie!
