to release a brand new song ‘ TIDAL WAVE’ for the summer
Worry Dolls are to release a brand new song on a deluxe version of their debut album in Europe on July 13th 2018 on Bread & Butter Music
Tidal Wave will also be released simultaneously on the US album release of ‘GO GET GONE’ through SFE Records /Caroline
The Duo have been touring their debut album featuring the AMA UK 2018 nominated song ‘Endless Road’ since the release in 2017; with over a hundred performances that have taken them on tour with Sam Outlaw, Ian Hunter, Robert Vincent and Dean Owens and to some major Festival appearances such as Cambridge Folk Festival Mainstage. 2018 also saw them starting their live career in Holland with repeat visits and later this year they will be touring in Germany. The US is the spiritual home of Go Get Gone as the girls made multiple visits to write and record with producer Neilson Hubbard in Nashville, but the release of their album Stateside was only confirmed in February when they performed Officially at the Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, as was their invitation to showcase at 2018 AmericanaFest this September In Nashville. The US radio had a great first week with straight adds from 10 stations, so anticipation is brewing for the release on July 13th.
Worry Dolls explain how Tidal Wave came about :
“The first verse of the song was a voice memo on my phone for nearly a year that I kept coming back to but couldn’t really figure out what it was about. I knew tidal wave was a metaphor for when it feels like life is coming at you at full force and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. But it wasn’t until I lost an extremely close family member last summer very tragically and suddenly that I came back to the song and realised it was about grief. When you’re grieving they say it comes in waves, but for me it felt like a tidal wave.
Around the same time, I had just got my first Gibson and it was this gorgeous Sheryl Crow edition Southern Jumbo with this beautiful rich, warm bass. Zoe was using a vintage Earl Scruggs banjo and when we got the instruments home, this song just poured out. It was like the stars had finally aligned. Quite soon after finishing it, we produced it ourselves and recorded it live in a converted cowshed just outside of London! ”

“The Video was shot by friend, occasional drummer, Finn in Kent around the area of Dungeness, which is a very eerie place surrounded by a ghost like village. We felt a real emptiness in the air as we drove through it.
In the afternoon of the shoot on the beach close by, we ended up having to surrender ourselves to the rain when the sky opened with torrential rain. Though it was quite fitting for the feeling and mood of the song, it was also a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for the both of us”. Zoe Nicol (WD)
