Southern California's the Aquadolls are riding high after a busy summer, which saw them opening for Jimmy Eat World at Chicago's Metro, gracing the stages at Lollapalooza and Beachlife Festival.
"With twinges of inspiration from the Sofia Coppola film The Virgin Suicides, we created our own 1970s-inspired tale with the help of vintage fashion, film cameras, and romantic faux pas,” says frontwoman Melissa Brooks. “Directed by our friend and close collaborator Savanna Morales, we tell the story of three girls who are all being led on by the same guy, catching him in the end and coming together as best friends.”
"Disappearing Girl" is gaining traction, after being added to major playlists including Spotify's The New Alt, New Noise, New Alt-Rock Mixtape, Fierce Femmes and Apple Music's Shazam: The Best New Music.

The Aquadolls formed in La Mirada, CA in January 2012, by Melissa Brooks, the band's lead singer and songwriter. Melissa began recording bedroom demos of her songs and eventually released the
album 'We Are Free' in early 2013, followed by the LP 'Stoked on You' in December 2014.
After a brief break from releases, the stars aligned in July 2018, and the new era of The Aquadolls commenced with Jacqueline Proctor on drums and Keilah Nina on bass. The band grew as a powerful threesome leading up to the release of The Aquadolls' highly anticipated second album, 'The Dream and the Deception,' recorded and self-produced by Brooks and self-released October 28, 2018, on Aqua Babe Records.
Following their sophomore album, the trio self-released the single "Suck on This" in summer 2019, followed by their 2020 viral cover of Lash's "Take Me Away" (a track made famous via its inclusion in the 2003 Lindsay Lohan-starring Disney film 'Freaky Friday').
