The Rockstar Ramblings: Sisters Doll

During my weekly surf for new bands, videos, and porn I sometimes come across something that forces me to look deeper and say, “Is this for real?” This was my reaction when stumbling upon Sisters Doll. I still don’t have a definitive answer other than this band lies somewhere in between Cinderella, Alice Cooper, The Backstreet Boys, and Steel Panther.

Australian based glam rockers Sisters Doll have posted their first ever music video for the track "Dollhouse", off of their recently released debut album 'Welcome To The Dollhouse.’ The Mileto brothers -- Brennan 19, Bryce 17 and Austin 14 -- formed Sisters Doll in mid 2010. The boys won several band competitions, including Ampfest and Global Battle of the Bands, and recently completed a successful 2012 tour of Sydney. The band will be heading to the USA in August to play at the Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood, the closing party of the LA Rock Honors, plus the Whisky on Sunset.

We begin with a very hot girl looking to enter a house. Given the title of the song, it’s no surprise this is not a typical house. The creepy horror movie beginning is also a dead giveaway. YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER THE DOLLHOUSE! Once we are inside and see the band it’s time to take a step back…all the way back to 1986. Do we have spandex pants with red racing stripes? CHECK! How about teased up hair drenched in Aqua Net? CHECK! (NOTE: I have a theory connecting this band’s aerosol use to our recent heat waves – for another time.) Okay, finally, do we have pink striped drum sticks? CHECK! This is officially a 1986* glam parody.

I like how the video uses pieces of first aid tape in an “X” on the cheek. This really is the international symbol that says, “I’m a doll!” Love the band as well as their “back-up” dancers. This could be related to the lyrics “Welcome to the Dollhouse – We’re not leaving tonight” which reminds me of just about every “Dollhouse” experience (aka strip club) post five drinks.

Anyone else see the shuffle move at 3:20? I don’t think I’m out of line saying this move has NEVER been performed by any group other than NSYNC. The video ends with the girl fleeing the dollhouse and then waking up because it was all just a dream. Overall this was a very entertaining video; my one suggestion is that after the girl wakes up, she should be holding the pink striped drum stick. That is just the way it was done in 1986*…

*Important to note that all of the Mileto brothers were born after 1986 (for whatever that is worth).
