INTERVIEW: The Rocket Dolls (UK)

Brighton rock trio have just unleashed their sophomore album 'DeaDHeaD' which is going down a storm with rock fans and press alike and they have quickly established themselves as a rising rock band to look out for and as a result, they have secured festival appearances this summer at Ramblin’Man Fair, Wildfire Festival and more. The band are currently on their UK tour supporting the album so I caught up with vocalist/guitarist Nikki Smash to discuss this, the new album and more...

How did you come up with your band name?

I was watching MTV2 or MTV rocks really late at night one of those I’m not going to sleep tonight, nights. Ricky Rocket from…

The song has all that euphoria and drive chanelled into it, alternating between fast, slamming riffs and big melodic chord progressions topped with soaring guitar and vocal…

RAZORWIRE HALO Release Official Music Video for "Sweat"

Kansas City, MO based electro-rock band Razorwire Halo has released the official music video for “Sweat,” from their March 27th released EP, Retaliate. “Sweat” was filmed on site in downtown Kansas City, MO by Kenn Little of “A Ghost in Every Room”

“Sweat is a powerfully rhythmic track that is very sexual by design. It focuses on the pure unrestrained sexual urges between two entities and we felt the video should continue on with that feeling. We wanted to show the entities crossing each other throughout the video without ever being able to interact. As though they were worlds apart but could still sense each other.” - Tak Kitara(Vocalist)

Tak and Kenn have a history of working with each other on videos and artwork for RWH releases. They shared the director role on their latest collaboration. Magen Killz signed on to the project to play the lead role early on during the development of the concept.

Check out the video below:
