REVIEW album The Dollyrots Whiplash Splash

Punk Rock Love Fest

Whiplash Splash

The Dollyrots

Upbeat punk rockers The Dollyrots are back with their sixth album 'Whiplash Splash'.

The album kicks off with ‘I Do’, radiating their lively and addictive sound, filled with uplifting guitar riffs and guaranteed to leave you singing along. ‘Babbling Idiot’ showcases Kelly Ogden’s haunting yet sweet voice... she will smile so pretty and then punch you in the gut.

‘Mermaid' tells the tales of how they split their time between coastal states Florida and Los Angeles, and acoustic number ‘This Addiction’ is sensitive, honest, with a power-pop backdrop. ‘Dance Like A Maniac’ kicks the energy up a notch, with its infectious early punk-rock vibe. Honestly, from start to finish you can’t help but have a good time. They do their take on Katrina and the Waves hit ‘Walking on Sunshine’, and it’s cool but nothing comes close to the signature Dollyrots originals.

Founding members and husband and wife team, Kelly Ogden (vocals/bass) and Luis Cabezas (guitar), once again return to their punk rock roots. The result of their efforts is a fun and edgy record that has been carefully put together in a way that takes planning and forethought, but does not sacrifice artistic freedom and creativity. It’s good old-fashioned gritty three-chord rock and roll with all the stylistic trappings of the pop-punk genre that fans have come to know and love.

From start to finish The Dollyrots will have listeners bobbing their heads, and signing along.
