DOLLS - Killing Time

Though the path of the two-piece rock band is fairly well-trodden by now, London duo DOLLS are attempting to inject some fresh impetus into the format with debut single Killing Time. After the cripplingly dull rock of Royal Blood managed to mystifyingly sweep the entire country this year, it's certainly refreshing to hear a group attack a song with genuine vigour and aggression.

Frontwoman Jade Ellins' vocals certainly help - here they brood and menace early on before giving way to primal howling alongside crashing drums and screaming guitars. It's exciting, visceral stuff that manages to steer well clear of two-piece blues rock cliches. An assured debut effort from a group who may well be ones to watch out for next year.
