DOLL & THE KICKS
"DATK are all attitude; radiating confidence, striking poses and delivering high quality, driven, eccentric pop. Singer Doll's voice is a perfectly spotless hybrid of Kate Bush and Gwen Stefani. Her energy is frantic yet focused and she works the crowd like a pro." ARTROCKER
"Doll & The Kicks pull off some damn hard sugary rock that scratches like it's the biggest bitch in the playground." THE SOURCE
"Full on feisty versatile firecracker of a band Doll and the Kicks confirmed to all and sundry that heavy can also be melodic, varied and fun. With bold time changes and glorious melodies Doll and the Kicks are never dull." BBC SOUTHERN COUNTIES.
"Brighton band with kooky girl singer who comes on like Lene Lovich, Kate Bush, Toyah and Wendy James all rolled into one. Commercially alluring , punky and catchy fare." LONDON BUGBEAR PROMOTIONS
"Doll bounces around the stage with the look and energy of a young Blondie....With floor-filling dance tunes such as Just 16, Always Been Her and Disco Queen, the music easily matches the glamour the band projects." ENTS24.COM
"Back up at The Park, the BBC Introcuding Stage was the place to be for emerging new talent, giving some of Britain's hottest new talent the chance to play the legendary mudfest. Doll and the Kicks outshone the others, with a set of danceable indie rock tracks that sit nicely between the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Rapture.
Their all-too-brief set edged from the more frenetic tracks built over their strong rhythm section to the more vocally-driven Kate Bush-esque tracks but the best moments were when the two sides of the band came together during the last couple of numbers. Throwing countless shirts out to the crowd that squeezed under the undercover area to avoid the rain, the-four-guys-and-a-girl genuinely relished a festival experience they'll be hoping to reprise in coming years."
