Described by Bob Harris as “a warm and infectious sound”, Worry Dolls’ music is packed full of sublime harmonies, atop a plethora of varied instruments. You can see them play live on 4th March on the Isle of Wight.

This video shows the Isle of Wight off beautifully even on a winter's day. There's a great style to the shooting and editing of this video, combined with memorable haunting music. Quite amazing to capture it all in an overnight stay.
