about

The Doll is an Aotearoa/NZ artist, currently based in London. She likes to augment her vocals with contact mics, balloons, bells, magnetic tape, percussion junk, garbage from the side of the road, horns, household appliances, a T-Pain mic, & field recordings. 'Live' is The Doll's seventh album. The tracks for this release were all recorded live in Aotearoa/NZ at Snails (Palmerston North) and the Audio Foundation (Auckland).

"The Doll can be constituted by mixing 3 parts experiment, 4 parts noise, 1 part ritual, and 2 parts theatre, with a pinch of space dust." - Alt Music
