Fast Five: Worry Dolls



How did you meet and what’s the story behind your band name?

Zoe was sat in the Egg Café in Liverpool and she called Rosie up with a long list of terrible band names. Rosie made one suggestion, Worry Dolls, and it stuck! We were actually both studying music in Liverpool, and started to perform and co-write together in our final year. We decided to take a leap and ditch all the solo material we’d just spent 3 years writing, to form Worry Dolls, on blind faith that we were stronger together.

How would you describe your music?

It’s indie/folk with country-tinged harmonies. We try to write about non-traditional things, or take topics from a different point of view.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

We’ve just got back from a trip to Nashville where we ended up writing the majority of an album! We’re touring throughout May and June, to support our EP release, then we have 3 months of festivals. After that, we’re heading back to Nashville to finish writing the album!

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

At the moment we’re obsessed with Lennon and Maisy. They’re this amazing sister duo and they’re like 10 and 14 years old, but they’re so freaking talented. We could do super awesome 4 part harmonies. Oh man! I hope that happens.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Probably the one album we’ve both consistently listened to for years is Home by Dixie Chicks. We were 13 when it came out, and we still listen to it all the time! It’s one of those albums where you discover something new on every listen. It still sounds so relevant today. It’s completely timeless.
