New single 'None Of This Is Right’ kicks off the album and makes for a dramatic gripping start. Nikki Smash’s vocals are great and varied. This is a solid well-rounded rock track that is strong with catchy hooks throughout…everything is ‘right’ about this.
The dark title track 'DeaDHead' has a hard grunge vibe, bouncy heavy riffs and memorable guitar work. This a standout track which serves perfectly as the representation of the band’s sound.
This release is well balanced, ranging from stomping grunge rock anthems to more chilled and mainstream rock moments seen in tracks such as ‘She Said’ which is stripped back but still with a grunge rock influence present and ‘The Last Thing On My Mind’ which flows wonderfully on from this, with a massive rock ballad feel and again demonstrates their softer more accessible sound catering for the masses.
The high powered ‘The Desperate’ gets things moving again and is the fiercest and heaviest offering on the album and is a welcomed addition to the mix.
Final and crushing song ‘Trigger’ is unpredictable and powerful going out with a bang. It again demonstrates until the very end that the band can pull off a range of sounds and are not lacking in terms of creativity and depth.
They certainly continue to prove that they are a band to keep an eye on. This sophomore release is rife with strong grunge influences but they still manage to put their own twist on it, incorporating a bit of everything from heavy rock, punk and modern mainstream rock elements, all of which is injected with driving riffs and catchy melodies, along with the right amount of angst and emotions, leaving something for everyone.
The Rocket Dolls new album 'DeaDHead' is out 6th April 2018 and available to pre-order now.
