The Summer Dolls – I Was 17 (Starflyer 59 Cover)

Hope your 2018 summer is going great! Here’s The Summmer Dolls covering “I Was 17”!

The Summer Dolls from Nashville TN create timeless pop sounds re-calibrated through a delectably modern lens. Baby doll angelic vocals float over churning 21st century noise pop, and Fender guitars sunbathe in an endless summer of reverb.

Starflyer 59 is one of our favorite bands and an early / constant / essential influence. “Silver” perked up our ears, “Gold” bared our soul, and “Americana” gave us swagger. “The Fashion Focus” and “Everybody Makes Mistakes” were the vital soundtracks of many a late night drive full of emotions too deep to process or express. “Leave Here a Stranger” showed us a modern pop masterpiece while “Old” showed us a modern rock masterpiece. “Portuguese Blues” was a delightful throwback, the strings on “Talking Voice vs. Singing Voice” melted our hearts, and the bass guitar on “My Island” got us on our feet. And on. And on.


This cover is on the Side B of 2018 compilation album “All My Fans Who Play Guitar”.
