Aussie rockers Sisters Doll have done more in their short music career than most bands do in a lifetime.
Since forming in 2010 the three brothers have been on Australia’s Got Talent, judged All Together Now, played on separate occassions with KISS legends Bruce Kulick and Peter Criss, performed on last year’s KISS Kruise, toured overseas on multiple occasions, played the Whisky A Go Go and toured Australia with legends such as Eclipse, Pretty Boy Floyd, Enuff Z Nuff, Wednesday 13, Crash Diet and more.
Did I mention they are all still pretty much kids?
The music world has had the privilege of watching these three youngsters from the small town of Collie in Western Australia grow up – both musically and as men – practically before our eyes. We have shared in their debut album Welcome To The Dollhouse and breathed every moment of their television performances and live outings.
Essentially starting life as an 80s inspired glam metal outfit, Sisters Doll’s music has grown with its members, the culmination of which can be heard in their latest single Kiss Me which is out on February 10.
HEAVY caught up with Bryce (drums) and Austin (bass) Mileto to chat about the new track and more.
“It’s kind of a bit more punk and pop influence,” Austin began. “That was not a choice. We wrote it and that’s the path it was taking. Musically, it’s kind of in that vein but has a super catchy chorus.”
“It probably wasn’t our first choice going in with this song,” Bryce added. “But the more we were working in the studio Ricky, our producer, said this would be a good one to go with. Prisoner (last single) is pretty heavy and in your face. This one still has the edge of that, but it’s a bit more pop/punk esque. A bit more radio friendly and a bit more…”
“A bit more of that touch to it,” Austin took over. “Prisoner was so hard-hitting, so we thought… this is a hard-hitting song – it’s got that heavy, guitar driven riff…”
“We thought we would try a different thing,” Bryce concluded. “And then the follow-up single to this one even is different again. It’s pretty cool. We thought we would show the different side of the band and how we can pump out… I guess we’re trying to steer away from that stereotypical thing where people think we’re a cover band or a throwback to the 80s, but we’re more trying to show our musical growth.”
In the full interview the boys discuss Kiss me in greater detail, the inspiration behind the track, the special video being released on Valentine’s Day, growing up in the spotlight, their upcoming album and its musical direction, the recent Glam Fest tour, playing on the KISS Kruise, future plans and more.
