Gobsmacked is an interesting word and sometimes used in the wrong way. Never for Soho Dolls though, stunning electro pop rock album with live performances that will literally leave you gob smacked! Fun and mad quirky album but it is the live performance that is the real jaw dropper! Maya is one of the most charismatic singers in the industry today! Waiting with baited breath for the second album but if you fancy a touch of similar quirkiness check out the Nicola Roberts album which has input from Maya and has aspects of the Soho Dolls about it.

Praise for Sohodolls

"Utterly magnificent slab of haughty electro-sleaze which makes Peaches sound as predatory and erotically charged as KT Tunstall. Let them get frosty on your ass - it is winter after all."
NME [on last single `No Regrets']

"Post-feminism sex rock n roll and it's downright tasty...let's do the nasty on the dancefloor"
The Fly

SOHODOLLS release their long-awaited debut album, `Ribbed Music For The Numb Generation,' on September 3rd.

Produced by Robert Harder (Whitey, Polar Bear, Babyshambles, The Sunshine Underground) and Steve Lyon (Depeche Mode, The Cure), `Ribbed Music...' is a twelve-track trawl through an electro-tinged rock 'n' roll underworld. An album about strippers, violence, paranoia and police car chases was actually recorded in a barn in Cornwall, surrounded by horses, sheep and summer berries in bloom."

The band's eclectic influences have conspired to create a multi-textured debut: "We love rock 'n' roll, electro, glam, '77-british punk, jazz and hip hop," says Maya the bands lead singer. "All these extremes make our music ribbed. We don't fit easily into pigeon-holes - not in music and not in life. We feel our generation has been cheated. Modern life has conspired to make us dumb, numb and un-questioning. We want people to tap into their primal senses again: lust, anger, love, fear, compassion, happiness and humour. Lyrically and musically the songs on this album express all of these feelings and instincts."
And the band's favourite tracks?

Now this was quite a disappointment: after aseries of really great singles, the Soho Dolls have apparently re-recorded them with a new keyboardist: I think she was called Ana Von Doll or whatever and the intro to the excellent single Stripper has been changed to remove her name. Strange. Also the sound does not seem as strong even on the singles. This was a very promising band. I am not saaying this is bad, it still is a good collection of songs but it pales compared to what it should have been.

Maya Von Doll is the greatest frontwoman I've ever seen live. Actually, she's the best frontperson of any gender I've ever seen live. The Sohodolls' Scala gig in London on May 22nd 2009 was magnificent - hands down, the best gig I've ever had the pleasure of attending.
And this, their debut album, forms the backbone of their setlist. "Ribbed Music..." is totally sassy, totally seductive, quite naughty and full of great hooks and riffs and keyboard atmospheres. Maya's singing is delicate, unshowy, posh-London-accented, hugely, hugely likeable. A far cry from the strangulated cat/constipated camel warbles of the far more celebrated and far less talented Duffy, Adele, Amy et al.
On first listen, most of the songs sound simple... simplistic, even. But there is great artistry at work here. The Dolls are superb songwriters and the lyrics are refreshingly unmannered, witty and playful - they blend perfectly with the music.
Stripper is a stonking opener - blending a rabble-rousing chorus with an almost wistful bridge. It's classy and dirty and raucous all at the same time. Lesser bands, lesser artistes would struggle to match Stripper's opening gambit. The astonishing thing about the Dolls is that, on this album, they begin in superlative fashion and maintain that standard throughout every single song. Prince Harry, My Vampire, Right and Right Again, Trash the Rental, I'm Not Cool, Bang Bang Bang, The Rest for the Wicked, Weekender, Pleasures of Soho, No Regrets, 1724.... this is perfect music. As perfect as anything Abba ever managed to come up with. (And I rate Abba highly as musicians and songwriters.)
Live, the Dolls were an incredibly tight unit - their sound is heavier, meatier than on record. Heavier and meatier, in fact, than many metal acts!
