As part of the ongoing promotion for their well received 2023 release ‘Night Owls’, The Dollyrots have highlighted the brilliant ‘Tonight With You’, and coupled it with a lyric video.
In terms of stand alone listens – whether you’re a long term admirer of the power pop duo, or about to become a fan – it really encapsulates their perky sound in the most direct way. It’s mid tempo allows for a massive drum sound to punch through; a wall of chiming guitars add great melodies that fall somewhere between a (rarely) on form Weezer and the often more reliable Letters To Cleo; above all else, Kelly Ogden’s bubblegum inflected vocal really adds to the song’s huge, sugar-coated sound. With the aid of crisp production values and a massively infectious hook, these three minutes act as a very effective plug for a great album. You can check out the lyric video below.
