The Dolly Daggers "Queen of the 21st Century”

Bringing "rock’n’roll without guitars,” this London, UK-based trio (not the Swedish band) may share the same set-up as soft rockers Keane but don’t be mistaken: this is far from soccer mom bait. Newly signed to XL, the three-piece perfect a dynamic middle ground between Spoon’s intricate pop genius and Ben Folds Five’s bouncing simplicity. (youtube.com/watch?v=PdxPA58Y6uY)
