After a 2023 that launched rising indie-pop duo Dolores Forever into the music stratosphere and saw them hotly tipped across the board, the band today announce their highly-anticipated debut album It’s Nothing – out September 20th. Pre-Order here.

After releasing two superb tasters in ‘Someday Best’ & ‘Why Are You Not Scared Yet?’, today brings a third offering from the forthcoming debut in the shape of ‘Go Fast Go Slow’ – a sad banger that tackles body image. “This song is somewhere to place our female rage,” Hannah Wilson & Julia Fabrin explain. “It explodes with a lifetime of frustration about being objectified, limited and defined by our gender. Feminism is far from completed and we’re ready to shout about it.” Listen here.

There’s an infectiously playful, unapologetic feminist energy at the heart of the London-based band, and now, Dolores Forever – the duo who met at a house party in 2018 and instantly became friends – are ready to release their debut album.

It’s a “punchy indie-pop record about feminism, friendship and navigating a messed up world. It blows our minds that the music industry is obsessed with hearing from people who are just 21. As we’ve gotten into our thirties, we have so many more stories, and so much more to say.”

The sincere ballad ‘Split Lip’ honours their protective instincts as friends, inspired by each woman’s individual struggles and a joint desire to help each other out. ‘Why Are You Not Scared Yet?’ and ‘Not Now Kids’ attempts to make sense of universal feelings of futility and powerlessness in the face of a turbulent world in freefall.

The album is inspired by the last 10 years weathering unfair treatment as female songwriters in a male-dominated industry. Julia, from Copenhagen, co-wrote the winning 2013 Eurovision entry for Denmark, Only Teardrops, while Hannah, from London, has written with Kylie and Stormzy.

Dolores Forever are building unstoppable momentum.
