Following their debut release ‘The Girl From Clapham’, and with support from the likes of Radio X and Resonanace FM, London DIY pop queens and pioneers of ‘mummycore’, I, Doris are back with a new single to see out the year with some much-needed feminist cheer.
The band’s self-proclaimed ‘theme song’, ‘Just Some Doris’ addresses how women are so often seen to be “all the same”, whilst oozing an uplifting, jangly energy and twinkling vocal harmonies. With a no-frills tongue-in-cheek wit, I, Doris reflect on how the opinions of women over a certain age are seen to have no consequence – “Just some Doris, you can just ignore us…” – all the while, juxtaposing a vibrant, sunny spirit with the sexist reality of a patriarchal society. Addressing a very real issue with a refreshing sense of sarcasm and catchy, upbeat tunes, it’s the perfect antidote to all our feelings of despair right now. So, get some Doris in your ears and stand up to the bigots.
Of the track, the band reflect:
“If we were darts players, this song would be our entrance music at the Frimley Green Country Club. We should totally be darts players.”
Watch the brand new DIY video for ‘Just Some Doris’, which was filmed while the band were over in New York earlier this year:
‘Just Some Doris’ will be available on Bandcamp and all major streaming services.
