Dolores Forever

Official Website

When alt-pop duo Dolores Forever perform their 2024 single “Someday Best”, a spirited anthem about living your best, carefree life, their fans go wild for one lyric in particular: “Shut up and eat the pasta!” Now emblazoned across Dolores Forever T-Shirts, it’s a line that perfectly captures the infectiously playful, unapologetic feminist energy at the heart of the London-based band, made up of songwriters Hannah Wilson and Julia Fabrin, who met at a house party in 2018 and instantly became friends. 

This friendship has underpinned the band’s whirlwind rise since releasing their first single, Kilimanjaro, in 2021, creating the safety for them to write unflinchingly honest and humourously relatable lyrics about relationships, mental health, and existential angst. In 2022 they released two back-to-back EPs (Baby Teeth and Conversations With Strangers), and, despite having played just three live shows, were invited to perform at Glastonbury. By 2023 Rolling Stone UK and NME had marked them as ‘ones to watch’, they sold out their first headline show at Omeara and released a third EP, I Love You But You’re Making Me Sad. 


Now, they’re ready to release their hotly anticipated debut album, It’s Nothing, which they describe as a “punchy indie-pop record about feminism, friendship and navigating a messed up world.” Remaining defiant in a society that prizes “the magic of youth and girlhood”, Dolores Forever represent the power of “womanhood” in all its complexity. “It blows our minds that the music industry is obsessed with hearing from people who are just 21. As we’ve gotten into our thirties, we have so many more stories, and so much more to say.”
