4 Words. Rock N’ Fucking Roll
Ottawa’s premiere female fronted alternative punk band recently released their second album, titled “The Ragdoll Diaries”, a hard hitting follow up to the popular debut ‘Inside The Dollhouse’.
Doll, a four-piece based out of Ottawa, Canada, formed in 2005 provides the missing link between punk and rock, a sound that’s been lacking in mainstream music for quite some time. In a time of oversaturation of commercially designed and developed music to subdue the listener into a false sense of marketability, Doll’s fresh and honest songs cut through like a hot knife through butter, snapping the listener out of their daze and onboard their trip of truth and beautifully crafted angst through sound and vision. Inspired by the great bands such as Sonic Youth, Hole and L7, Paramore, Flyleaf and Die Mannequin, Doll is on its way to becoming a musical force to be reckoned with, inspiring, creative, and honest.
The Ragdoll Diaries is undoubtedly Doll’s best works to date, working alongside producer Jason Jaknunas, Christina Kasper’s lyrics and vocal performance provides a call to all, to stand and believe in yourself, take action, to never be silent. The intensity of the drum and bass, emphasized by the intricate guitar work and atmospheric solo’ing rounds out an album that has it all, creative musicianship, honest lyrics, and a truth that’s been missing in music for some time. Supported by the fearlessly rocking threesome of Pete Kasper, Nick ‘Chopz’ Richer and newcomer to the Doll family Alex Vance, this is one band that you don’t want to miss getting in on the party early and staying for days while you zone out the beautifully crafted yet fiercely hard hitting tunes.
