The Dollyrots- Whiplash Splash

The Dollyrots- Whiplash Splash

March 17, 2017 |

The production on the album certainly holds up. The rhythm section holds solid the whole time, providing many a foot tapping beat. The guitars are in some parts as heavy as you'd hope, City of Angels for example, but at others they adapt to different styles easily. This Addiction gives a great example with a country-meets-punk sound that gives the track a real unique feel. The track also features some additional instrumentation and while not being the only track to do this on the record it has the most effect on this track. The vocals across the track are well performed and well thought out. It's hard to pick out a song that doesn't have the sing along quality that this band does so well.

Overall the record is a very diverse effort from the band. The album flows well and incorporates the style changes with ease. It's easy to listen to and has a lot of appeal for sure. As someone who listens to a lot of music that isn't particularly joyous it's nice to put Whiplash Splash on and just stop being so serious for a bit. It's a breath of fresh air that stands well on it's own. The record feels like someone took earlier female fronted punk such as The Runaways and mixed it up with modern Pop Punk and threw in a little something else for good measure. The Dollyrots are definitely worth a listen if you've ever been a fan of bands like Bowling For Soup or All Time Low. The Dollyrots are unique in their own way and it's something that makes them so much fun to listen to. The record is released to the public on March 24th so in the mean time listen to the singles and wait eagerly.
