Touting a classic rock sound with twangy guitars and backing organs, “Doll House” is an endearing debut from The Skye Bleu Crew, a band from Bloomingdale, Illinois. Jen Botka’s spirited vocals enamor with retrospective musing: “it started with a doll house and turned into a life with you.” A rising sequence of guitars approach the one-minute mark, the “want it any other way,” emotive outpouring showing a gripping pull. Bill Sonoda’s colorful guitar solo crafts an engaging mid-point, leading into further enjoyable vocal reprisals.
Mastered by Grammy winner Blaise Barton at JoyRide Studios in Chicago, “Doll House” touts crisply accessible production and a no-frills rock sound that engages quickly and seamlessly.
This track and others released in March can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2022’ Spotify playlist.
