LA Punk band The Aquadolls have released new single “Far Far Away,” their final before the June 2nd, 2023 release of their album Charmed (Enci Records). The song features production by Chris Szczech (The Goo Goo Dolls), and is “a call to arms for anyone looking to ferociously take back their independence.” The Aquadolls are currently on tour and will be playing the new track.

Lead singer Melissa Brooks says:

’Far Far Away’ is a fairytale twist on the working class, discussing that the only person who can truly save you is yourself. Recorded by Chris Szcech, this up-tempo track features surfy guitar licks reminiscent of early Vampire Weekend and hand claps to ensure that anyone can clap and chant along to this modern self-love fairytale.

Bassist Keilah Nina adds:

A tune about struggling with work-life balance. The painful reality of getting trapped in the same 9-5 routine and feeling blocked or detached from personal growth, success, and/or love as a result. It’s also a tale of acceptance, sometimes you have to pull yourself out of the dirt, and that’s okay!

So far off of their upcoming album, The Aquadolls have released singles “Beachy,” “Sneaky,” and “Burn Baby Burn” in their continuing mission to delve into guitar-driven Rock.

In celebration of their upcoming album, The Aquadolls are currently out on a headline North American Spring Fling tour, running from coast to coast through early June. This features an album release show on June 2nd, 2023 at the Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles. Later in the year, the band will play Ohana Festival.
