Dolman is a Bristol-born audio project by Scott Hendy of Malachai (Domino Publishing) and Ben Salisbury of DROKK (Invada RecordS), which has manifested itself into a full LP. Comprising instrumentals and guest vocalled tracks, the record evokes a dark cinematic air, like ‘The soundtrack to a film about Bristol that has never been made’.
Dolman is imbued with a quality of apartness that is distinctly Bristol. The album features vocals from some of the cities finest musical talent, including Danny Coughlan AKA Crybaby on lead single ‘On Stoney Ground’, which features lyrics inspired by Turner Prize-winning Steve McQueen’s artwork Queen and Country. Other Bristol vocalists include Alison Garner of The Fauns on ‘Flight 22’, and Derek Meins AKA The Agitator on ‘Uncanny Valley‘. Elsewhere, Adele Emmas of Liverpool three-piece Bird lends her soulful voice to lush ballad ‘The Rainbow’.
