“This is the deepest song I ever wrote, it’s called ‘I’m A Star’”–Melissa Brooks, The Aquadolls.
The fast-paced punk song clocks in at just over a minute. It was followed up by “Toy”, a catchy pop song about masturbation. The Aquadolls took their dreamy LA sound to Sacramento for the first time at MOMO Sacramento, for the last stop on their Rocktober tour. Country Club and Blue Fiction opened the show.
It’s been a lengthy four years since The Aquadolls; part surf rock, part garage rock album Stoked On You was released. Their second album, a nineteen track self-released project, that clocks in at over an hour is called The Dream and The Deception. It came out on all streaming platforms on the day of the show. They maintain the dreamy pop rock and roll sound fans have come to love, but with greater maturity to their songwriting. Have a listen to the band here.
