Dolly Spartans





Dolly Spartans get covered by The Wild Honey Pie, play Shea on 06.01

We heard talent when we heard Dolly Spartans' debut EP by Dolly Spartans in the spring of 2015 - and that's why we named it our record of the month. We are glad to see other local blogs covering the young NYC quartet: The Wild Honey Pie just posted a very flattering review of their latest single "It's not Easy" (streaming below). The group just released sophomore EP 'Time Sides With No One' and it's scheduled to perform at the new Shea Stadium location on June 1st, which we are not entirely sure is defined yet, although the venue recently more than succeeded in funding a Kickstarter campaign for its new spot.





Dolly Spartans unveils new single "I Hear the Dead” from upcoming EP

Dolly Spartans, whose self titled debut EP was our Record of The Month last year, delivers organic, feel-good pop'n’roll with a side effect of tapping feet and bopping heads. Today, we premiere the band's new single “I Hear the Dead,” off their upcoming EP ‘Time Sides With No One’. The hint of rasp in Michael Eliran’s voice, the tube crunched guitars, and the dynamic, energetic drums contribute in forging a sound that's classic and modern at once. Listen for yourself down below. - Ashley Muniz

Video premiere: Dolly Spartans' "Don't Be Sad"

Super young, Manhattan born and bred quartet Dolly Spartans played our Northside show on Thursday night, delivering their uplfiting power pop with remarkable instrumental skill for a band of musicians in their early twenties. Today we are premiering their studio video for single "Don't Be Said," which blends indie rock with exotic influences reminiscent of... what is it that we hear in that bridge, Calipso? If not Calipso, something close, check it out!

The Deli NYC's Record of the Month: Dolly Spartans - self titled EP

I think we can all agree about the fact that age is very important in rock'n'roll; we might not like that (we don't) but we can agree about it, right? Therefore, a good rock song is bound to get some added value when it's written and performed by four musicians in their (not so late) teens. And then, if you also realize that the band has a solid six track debut EP with no fillers under their belt, things start to get really interesting: records without fillers are rare at any age... The band in question is NYC's Dolly Spartans; their self titled debut fluctuates between pop punk exuberance ('We'll say that for now,' streaming below, and ' 'Don't You Know') and more tamed melodic moments reminiscent of a dirtier Vampire Weekend ('Who Are You,') or even of sacred monsters like The Beatles and their beloved disciples XTC ('Something on my Mind'). The band's sound features the right amount of rawness (think early Pixies), which gets tamed at least in part by songwriter and lead singer's Michael Eliran tenor, that sounds way more mature than his years. The range of the six tracks, the actual songwriting, and the maturity of the arrangements is truly impressive for such a young band, and make this is one of the most consistently fun NYC made record we heard in a while. Hopefully these guys' sound won't get too polished too soon!

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
