Two women, four Doc Martens and an abundance of acoustic instruments. This sums up the talented duo that is Chanel Lucas and Roz Pappalardo aka Women in Docs, whose latest single Carousel is floating on the musical plane as a taster for their much-anticipated album of the same name, due out next February.
“I really like this album!” Lucas proclaims.
“There are lots of stories about our travels, but I also think that it’s an album that a lot of people will relate to. The ideas aren’t just about us.”
Following their hiatus, they couldn’t be more ready to rock their signature acoustic vibe.
“We have done a couple of festivals and gigs so we’re definitely ready to roll,” says Lucas.
“We did have a few dramas though, first weekend on tour we lost phone chargers and left luggage behind. We have a bit of a band saying: ‘we’re not in a war zone, it’s just music’.”
Things are back on track and it’s fair to say that these shows will be a shame to miss. Especially with Lucas’ favourite pair of Docs making an appearance.
“Currently I own a really beautiful flowery pair. They’re like your nana’s curtain flowers and I absolutely love them. I have been wearing them everyday.” (CD)
