Rising So Cal all-female rock trio The Aquadolls have released a new single, titled “Beachy.” Released to radio early, the track is already gaining traction, currently sitting pretty on the SubModern Chart.
The song, which appears on the band’s upcoming album ‘Charmed’ was produced by Chris Szcezech (Goo Goo Dolls), and finds The Aquadolls dipping into their nostalgic roots, for a 60s meets 90s dream pop self-love song.
“Beachy” tackles the hardships of coming out of a global pandemic and quarantine. Front woman Melissa Brooks says the song, “takes the listener on a trip to the California sunshine with reverb-y guitar and saccharine vocals. While alone at home, we are left with the thoughts of missing those we are far apart from, but realize that self-love is key to making it through these hard times.”
The Aquadolls are currently on the road with Incubus and Sublime With Rome with dates running through September 3rd. See routing below.
Already a festival favorite, having performed for the masses at Lollapalooza, Ohana Fest, and Beachlife Festival, The Aquadolls will again grace the stage at Austin City Limits Festival this October.

About the Aquadolls:
The Aquadolls’ third album, ‘Charmed’ (which is named after the popular ‘90s/‘00s TV show), is a natural progression for their discography. Don’t let the relatable tales focused on love and relationships, heartbreak and longing for more fool you, the Aquadolls still are about having fun and showcasing humor in their lyrics. ‘Charmed’ charts the growth in the Aquadolls’ sound, fusing elements of melodic ‘60s harmonies and ‘90s-driven crunchiness with a modern twist that ushered in a new era for them, and it serves as a strong representation of what they want to do.

“The Southern California band effortlessly pours out infectious shoegazey bops, earnest headbangers, cosmic surf-punk ballads, and electrified power-pop anthems. Despite the sheer range of styles and genres reflected in their music, there’s a real cohesion to The Aquadolls’ addicting combination of sharp edges and even keel.
