Stockholm band Dolores Haze often make headlines for odd reasons. Recent exploits include their guitarist Groovy Nickz narrowly avoiding death at the hands of a falling Swedish music legend and then bassist Groovy Fuck (there’s a theme developing here) convincing an English journalist that her first name really was Fuck ( “it doesn’t mean Fuck in Swedish”). Outside of this capacity for incident, they’re also a really great band. Their Accidental EP was four songs of debased sludge rock, wrapped up with a cover of Peaches‘ ‘Fuck The Pain Away’. Their first full length album, The Haze Is Forever is about to drop and ahead of that they’ve released a video for recent single ‘Touch Me’
‘Touch Me’ sounds like something a sleazier version of The Pixies would turn out, all shoegaze drawl and moody atmosphere. It’s therefore been treated with a suitably dusky video, filmed in some kind of bunker low on natural light and high on chains, vomit and other vaguely unsettling occurrings. The Haze Is Forever is out on November 13th on Woah Dad.
