ALBUM REVIEW: “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” by Doll Skin

MARISSA ANNE | Go Venue Magazine

Sydney Dolezal – vocals, Alex Snowden – guitars, Nicole Rich – bass and Meghan Herring – drums met in 2013 at The School Of Rock in Arizona. They garnered the attention of David Ellefson (Megadeth) and the rest is rock history. Having toured with the likes of OTEP, Metal Allegiance, Dead Kennedy’s and Hellyeah gives the illusion that they are older than they are. These ladies aren’t even able to buy alcohol yet. Do not let that cloud the fact they are skilled musicians. “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” is their sophomore LP released on June, 16th 2017 on the EMP LABEL.
Titles such as “Baby’s Breath”, “Sunflower” and “Sweet Pea” gives the first impression that this is an LP filled with “girls songs” and while these songs are a tad softer they throw off the shackles of and preconceived ideas formed off the cuff with “Puncha Nazi” a punk song all 1 minute and 53 seconds of message filled lyrics, driving beats and a catchy hook. “Boy Band” is another stand out, but the hidden gem on this LP has to be their cover of “Uninvited” by Alanis Morisette an amazing re-imagining that gives it a much harder edge with chugging guitars and explosive drums.
Catch them during Van Warped Tour this summer and be sure to purchase both of their releases on
