The Dollyrots “Trees Sway”

Known for their infectious pop-punk anthems, The Dollyrots, Kelly Ogden (bass and vocals), Luis Cabezas (guitar and vocals), with Simon Hancock as their current touring drummer are gearing up for a March tour with Gymshorts and The Boreouts as support on select dates. The full list of dates is below, and tickets are available here:

In anticipation of the March tour the Dollyrots are releasing a lyric video for their emotional ballad “Trees Sway” from their recent album release Night Owls out now.

When asked about “Trees Sway,” Cabezas shares, “You know how sometimes things come to you in a dream, and you wake up thinking you’ll remember, then instantly forget it? That almost happened with “Trees Sway”. I was gifted the song in a dream and woke up abruptly, turned to Kelly and said, “turn your phone audio recorded on, I’ll be right back.” Grabbed a guitar and played the whole thing, front to back, complete with lyrics in one go. That became the song, and when she sang it for the record it took on a life of its own,” Ogden adds, “Trees Sway” about love, loss, and reincarnation. Things we believe in deep down and oftentimes find hard to articulate”.


On Night Owls, the Dollyrots once again highlight their ability to craft music that resonates deeply, whether it’s through high-energy punk tracks, rowdy rockers, or introspective ballads. Each track brings its own flair, with subtle tweaks and shifts that keep the listening experience fresh from start to finish. Hear Night Owls at your favorite streaming platform here:
