Découverts en première partie de IamX il y a une semaine, j'écoute depuis l'album en boucle.
Gros coup de coeur pour cet univers et ce son particulier
(non non, ce n'est pas que pour la charmante chanteuse^^).
C'est simplement envoutant, bref je surkiff total.
Tite bio "in english sir" tirée de wiki.
A bon entendeur...

Soho Dolls are a British electro group from London, England. The group was formed in 2003 and, following various line-up changes, currently (October 2007) includes Maya von Doll (vocals), Toni Sailor (guitar) and Weston Doll (keyboards). These members are joined by other musicians on stage.
The band - whose name is sometimes punctuated with a space as Soho Dolls - have described their sound as a cross between "decaying and desperate glamour" and "savagery and sex". Their debut album Ribbed Music for the Numb Generation was released through A&G Records in September 2007.
Soho Dolls were formed in London, England, in 2003 after guitarist Toni saw Maya performing at the Rhythm Factory in her then band and agreed to play guitar with them - leading Maya and Toni to branch off and form their own group.
In 2004 the group signed a recording contract with Poptones and released their debut single "Prince Harry". The song reached number seven on the UK indie charts. On July 4th 2005, the band released another single, "Stripper", which also made the indie charts, peaking at number 12.
Both singles earned the band much acclaim from the British music press, and the following year they signed a contract with A&G Records. Their first release for the label was a re-recorded and slightly different version of "Stripper", released in July 2006. This failed to chart.
Throughout 2006, Soho Dolls attracted more attention - touring with She Wants Revenge during July, performing at Hugh Hefner's Moscow Playboy party in August and the Big Issue's 15th-anniversary concert in September, and appearing alongside The Horrors at NME's 'Rock 'n' Roll Riot Tour'.
They began writing and recording their debut album in 2006 with producers Steve Lyon (The Clash, Depeche Mode) and Robert Harder (Babyshambles, The Sunshine Underground). In October of 2006, the band released a download-only single, "No Regrets", which the NME reviewed as an "utterly magnificent slab of haughty electro-sleaze which makes Peaches sound as predatory and erotically charged as KT Tunstall. Let them get frosty on your ass – it is winter after all."
Their debut album, "Ribbed Music for the Numb Generation", was released on September 24 2007, preceded by the single "Right and Right Again" and supported by an extensive headline tour of the UK.
Soho Dolls are known for their provocative stage shows and photo sessions, with Maya Von Doll often wearing outfits including stockings, suspenders, microskirts, stilettos and breast tape. Similar items have also been sported by her male band mates.
