I gotta admit, I wasn’t sold on these girls when I first heard their first single “Je Suis Une Dolly,” in fact it left no impression on me at all! I don’t remember it! The name “Dolly Rockers” reminded me of one of those gimmicky pop groups like The Fast Food Rockers. Turns out, I judged too quickly. While their fashion sense could be classified as one part Ginger Spice, two parts street whore…(in a good way)…they definitely bring something fun and interesting to the pop scene.

The new song by The Dolly Rockers…I can’t stop listening to it! I’ve most definitely been “Dolly Rockered.” The girls’ label, Parlophone is apparently selling this as their debut single, which I think is a smart move as “Gold Digger” is a hot mess, EMPHASIS on the HOT! Sure, they aren’t really the best vocalists…doing quite a bit more shouting than actual singing…but who cares! I’m not looking for filler. I’m looking for good, fluffy electro-pop.
The group, consisting of Brooke Challinor, Lucie Kay, and Sophie King, first gained some notoriety when they competed together on Simon Fuller’s X-Factor back in 2006. Now signed to a major label, they’re working on their first album due out sometime later this year. P.S. – I’m even starting to like “Je Suis Une Dolly” now! Curses! I’m easy. Look out for “Gold Digger” remixes from Bimbo Jones, and Superbass. “Je Suis Une Dolly” was also remixed by the Soul Seekerz. “Gold Digger” is out in the UK on August 30th.
