2023 just keeps getting bigger and better for rising duo Dolores Forever. After a run of summer festival dates, the band today announce their superb new single ‘Why Are You Not Scared Yet’, out now on Sweat Entertainment – listen HERE.
Produced by King Ed (Baby Queen, Dylan), ‘Why Are You Not Scared Yet’ is the band’s most energised single to date and alongside their first UK tour, marks the duo as one of the most exciting acts around.
The band explain; “Are you terrified most of the time? Cos we are! Climate change, social media, relationships and societal expectations of women are all included in our handy tool kit of anxiety about the world we inhabit, so we made a song about it. Why cry when you can shout, why mope when you can dance. If the world is ending this is our soundtrack to the existential crisis house party.”
Following the success of previous singles ‘I Love You But You’re Making Me Sad’, ‘When I Say So’ & ‘Conversations With Strangers’, Dolores Forever have been tipped across media and radio alike and are living up to their tags as one of the most exciting new acts to make an impact this year.
Formed by close friends and songwriters Hannah Wilson (from Yorkshire) and Julia Fabrin (from Copenhagen), Dolores Forever met at a house party in London, connecting over their love of Mitski, Sharon Van Etten, Stevie Nicks and the Spice Girls.
Having already wowed at Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds Festivals last summer and with acclaim across the board the duo look set for a huge career.
The band played a summer of festival and support dates this year including impeccable sets at The Great Escape, Latitude and Boardmasters. In support of the new single they head out on their first headline UK tour with dates across the country listed below.
Already looking to the future with even more magical singles to come, Dolores Forever are building unstoppable momentum. Watch this space.
