With praise coming from RTRFM, Apple Music and the indie press, Dolce Blue’s blend of alternative pop and indie rock is sparking the interest of tastemakers all over. Hailing from the Western Australian town of Kalamunda, the first emerged in 2018, unveiling their debut album the following year. They’ve seen consistent local support, and made their way across the country, bringing in new audiences from their performances alongside some of the most exciting Australian up-and-comers. With the backing of multi-time WA Music Label of the Year winners Blue Grey Pink, they’ve hit milestone after milestone, with a bright future on the horizon.

Ahead of their upcoming deluxe edition of Sweet Melancholy, Dolce Blue recently unveiled ‘Typical Kind of Fun’, the steady rock rhythms rambling through the track with a wistful pensiveness. Taking their time and taking it all in, the band see no need for roaring riffs and high-octane tempos to get their point across, the reflective calmness in every word producing a far more bewitching experience. The knowledge of the betrayal in the lyrics, makes it feel almost retrospective, a look back at the past with crestfallen tonality. 

Veronica, lead singer, explains the songwriting process and how the track arrived on Sweet Melancholy (Deluxe), Brody came to me with some songs he had started writing, one of them was just a snippet which is the opening few lines of Typical Kind of Fun that I felt really drawn to,I could relate to the idea of somebody having a hold on you and the disappointment and betrayal of finding out that that person is not really who you thought they were, so I expanded on it to form the rest of the song.” continuing “It’s always just a song that’s stuck in my head, and I’m glad that we’ve finally recorded it and Brody’s built up the confidence to share his singing voice!”
