Raised on a strict diet of diamond shards and sugarfree champagne, nikki awesome (now DOLLS) was born from pop-cultured delusions, to create melodic synthpop juxtaposed by lyrics bred in the brain of the self-confessed impermanance addict.
More than adequately exuding a permanent state of adolescence fueled by a love of music and too many late nights in the fashion industry, Nikki Awesome initially instigated her own installation as an F-list Toronto socialite and DJ; turning up at all the wrong parties in all the right outfits.
While making public appearances with a troop of naughty girl scouts, Nikki met Die Mannequin’s Care Failure, who spun and pointed her in the direction of How To Kill Music and Warner Music Canada, and Nikki Awesome signed with Warner Music to release the hit singles You Say (It Was Supposed To Be) and All The Little Things, gaining her mainstream pop chops with national Top 10 and 20 listings respectively.
Earning accolades from some of the most respected minds in Canadian music and abroad for her work with The Royal Society was not enough, and the bitch became her own Yoko Ono, breaking up the band to create her latest incarnation – DOLLS. Salman Rushdie is her latest and greatest fan, but when pressed, she’ll add ANGIE BOWIE, New Order and Carole Pope of the inimitable and incredible ROUGH TRADE to the list.
In 2009, the artist (who was now using the moniker DOLLS exclusively) moved to London, UK, to learn production and tell everybody to fuck off, which she has done multiple times a day since then.
Self-releasing her debut album Secret Sulk in January 2013 to delight at a personified hybrid between SEX-era Madonna and Depeche Mode, she continues to kill it. Go to Dollsxx.com for more, more, more.
