They are very good but they need to find their own style, we already have SCANDAL.

Not bad, but I think they are idolizing SCANDAL a little too much.
This way they will only stand in SCANDAL's shadow if they ever become more, so they have to really find their own style.

That might be true, I just don't like that they are trying to be like SCANDAL and try to ride on their train. As of now I see not a big problem with it, but as they progress I hope their own unique style will comes through. As you said, we already have SCANDAL.

They are still young and given the fact that they participated in the Scandal copy band grand prix twice and winning it in the second try it is natural for them to adapt the style of the one that they idolize... As they progress in their careers they will soon find their own style.

Also it's hard to get out of the shadow cast by Scandal for any upcoming girl band since our girls are the "can do it all" type

really liking this song
hope they make it big especially now that a slot in the girl band scene is left empty by the disbandment of Stereopony...

maybe they'll need to move a bit away from scandal's shadow because it's very common that if you get famous and your style is similar to others you will always get compared to others...just saying

but still they're good and i'm looking forward to them Nice One

I was about to make a topic about them, luckily I made a search before that... Tongue 

I think every SCANDAL fan should keep close eye and ears on them. For the few videos I watched from dolls, it is clear they have a huge potential. I mean, they are what, 17 years old? And they are already awesome.

It would be easy for them to just perform SCANDAL covers all the time, but they already have great songs, like Burst and Asu wo Mitsukeyou.

And really, what is this "SCANDAL style" they must stand away from?  Before SCANDAL, there was ZONE, and before all girl bands there was Princess Princess, they all are about girls playing pop-rock songs. The only way to not look like SCANDAL after being formed after them is playing metal, or some other kind of music SCANDAL does not make.

Give them a chance. It's like getting on a time machine and watching a new SCANDAL rising from their very beginning. Love Struck 

Here's an amazing live performance with cool songs and cute dance steps for Burst:

They sound interesting Happy I like "Burst" and "I Will Find Tomorrow"!

Is there an english site/forum with more infos on them?

Their blog/website doesn't seem too active, the last item is from july 2012 I think and it's their only single?

What happened to them?

I don't know if there's an english site about them, but their ameblo page is active. If you scroll down a little, you can see new posts. As of today, november 12, both Eve and Sach posted, including a pic of them recording in the studio.

About new singles, I'm sure there's more to come, as they performed live with a setlist with new songs and no covers at all, as seen in one of their recent posts on their blog. But we need to remember these girls are still at high school age, and they are not yet signed to a major label, so these make for harder steps about releasing new stuff.

Thanks a lot Rank57 for the information Praise 

I apologize, I can't read japanese and I only saw the top message about the single, usually the top post is the latest so I thought their blog was not updated anymore. But yeah if you scroll down you can see the blog is active so it's a great news!

Their twitter also seem active : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

So yeah they are very young like SCANDAL was and they are on an indie label I guess? Any news about them releasing an album or something soon? :D

Is there a online store (in english) where you can buy their CD? Didn't found it on CD Japan. I actually like their work, there is only the (full) 14:28 song that i couldn't find in a video Sad The 3 others are great. Burst Love 

As some said, they are like SCANDAL and they idolize them but when you are young like that it's normal to have idols and play like them and all! If they can become a pro band I'm sure they will write their own songs (or have help like SCANDAL) and find their style/music. Also nothing wrong if they go the same way as SCANDAL!!

Their sound is more raw at the moment, like SCANDAL was Happy But with only one guitar they might keep that kind of sound later no? I mean... with only one guitar you cannot play the same sounds in a song than you could with two guitars I guess?

No problem! Truth is, I can read only really, really basic japanese, and just found out about new posts because I randomly scrolled the page down... Tongue 

Unfortunately, as I can't fully understand japanese, I don't know much more about them, nor have means to find out more.

I don't even know if they are signed with any labels at all. Even indie labels have people promoting their stuff, or may have other artists signed with them, but all Dolls has seems like it's done by themselves, or by very few people. You can see all their videos are filmed by a single camera. Oh, you can find their "official" Youtube channel here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Judging from the songs they perform on videos and considering they only released 1 mini-album, I'm sure they could release another one any time from now. This is the setlist I was referring to previously, there's some songs not featured in their mini-album:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm seriously hooked on "Burst". It sounds somehow like SCANDAL's DOLL, during live performances with only the drums playing and the front girls clapping their hands. But it still is different. It's a really great song.

Anyway, I'm following them for now on. I already joined SCANDAL fandom too late, so I don't want to miss a possible "future SCANDAL".

dolls birthdays:
Eve:  April 12, 1996
Mayu: September 25, 1997
Sach: September 7, 1996
 
My Rock ‚n‘ doll album and some other goods (GBRK CDs and shirt yeahh) arrived yesterday at my place. Thank you very much again Nami for managing everything! I really like the album so far but I miss some of the older songs which are sold out. My bonus content is a picture of Sach.


Fun fact: I talked to Eve and Mayu at Osaka FootRock & Beer and at Nagoya Heartland so I knew from their major debut and album before the internet, ha-ha proud, just joking.


No honestly they were all three very friendly, relaxed and took their time even with the language barrier. With some translation help I got a signed t-shirt which still has a special place in my house.
