L.A. femme-punk band The Aquadolls release ‘Far Far Away,’ the final single from their upcoming studio album Charmed.

‘Far Far Away’ is a glowing cut of alternative rock, produced by Chris Szczech (The Goo Goo Dolls), calling for the listener to take back their independence. Commenting on the meaning behind the track, lead singer Melissa Brooks says “Far Far Away’ is a fairytale twist on the working class, discussing that the only person who can truly save you is yourself. Recorded by Chris Szcech, this up-tempo track features surfy guitar licks reminiscent of early Vampire Weekend and hand claps to ensure that anyone can clap and chant along to this modern self-love fairytale.”

Additionally, bassist Keilah Nina added that the song is “A tune about struggling with work-life balance. The painful reality of getting trapped in the same 9-5 routine and feeling blocked or detached from personal growth, success, and/or love as a result. It’s also a tale of acceptance, sometimes you have to pull yourself out of the dirt, and that’s okay!”

‘Far Far Away’ has been released with a Jenna Houchin directed video, in which the band are stuck within the retro normality they seek to break.

‘Far Far Away’ is the fourth single ahead of Charmed’s June 2nd release, joining previous singles ‘Beachy’, ‘Sneaky’ and ‘Burn Baby Burn.’ The album looks to merge influences from both classic 60s melodies and 90s edge, as well as the bands humour.
