    The Aquadolls [inside]

    Last seen thrashing out at ACL Fest 2022, L.A.’s Aquadolls return with a sound they dub “mermaid rock and roll” – a signature mesh of punk angst, surf harmonies, and garage-rock distortion – on a headlining tour ahead of their upcoming album Charmed. The trio’s unapologetically riotous energy erupts through pre-release anthem “Burn Baby Burn,” as lead singer Melissa Brooks insists: “Your lesson must be learned or I’m gonna make you burn.”
