Rising So Cal all-female rock trio The Aquadolls have released their new single, titled “Beachy”, out now across all DSP. Released to radio early, the track has already gained traction.
The song, produced by Chris Szcezech (Goo Goo Dolls), finds The Aquadolls dipping into their nostalgic roots, for a 60s meets 90s dream pop self-love song.
“Beachy” tackles the hardships of coming out of a global pandemic and quarantine. Front woman Melissa Brooks says the song, “takes the listener on a trip to the California sunshine with reverb-y guitar and saccharine vocals. While alone at home, we are left with the thoughts of missing those we are far apart from, but realize that self-love is key to making it through these hard times.”
“Beachy” serves as the lead single to the band’s upcoming ‘Charmed’ LP. Watch for the music video to debut online soon.
In the meantime, the band’s latest single titled “Help (I’m Falling 4U and I Can’t Get Up)” is out now.

Already a festival favourite, having performed for the masses at Lollapalooza, Ohana Fest, and Beachlife Festival, The Aquadolls will again grace the stage at Austin City Limits Festival this October.
When Melissa Brooks formed the Aquadolls 10 years ago, it served as an outlet for her to channel her angst. In high school, she was bullied by her peers, and music served as a therapeutic way to express herself in a positive way. Though she initially aspired to be the next Lady Gaga, Brooks found her way into rock music for outsiders
Following the formation of the bedroom project, Brooks — who serves as the band’s primary singer, songwriter and guitarist — released the ‘Free’ EP in 2012 and her debut album, ‘Stoked on You’ in 2013. After cycling through musicians, Brooks joined forces with bassist Keilah Nina and drummer Jacqueline Proctor and things fell into place. The trio released their sophomore album, ‘The Dream and Deception,’ in 2018.
Once their current lineup solidified around the release of ‘The Dream and Deception’, the Aquadolls made serious moves.
