ALIENATION & RAGE
THE DODIES are a young garage rock duo from the southern desert of Israel. Yoni Avittan fronts the band as lead vocalist and guitarist, as Ran Aronson sings backing vocals while simultaneously playing bass lines on the keyboard with one hand and playing the entire drum kit with the other.
The band first premiered their whimsical video for the single “Boiling Point” from their debut album It’s One Hell of a Ride. The album was produced by THE DODIES and co-producer Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (Sons Of Apollo / ex-Guns N’ Roses).
In July 2020, THE DODIES released their imaginative video for the single “Alien”. Its animation was made independently by the band, featuring Yoni’s original drawings that were specifically made to envision the song’s energy.
Following the release of the bands welcomingly received debut album, the Garage Rock duo went back to the studio in August of 2021 to record their second album Floating in Limbo in Ireland, which was also co-produced with Ron Thal. The album released on April 20, 2022. The first single off the album, “No Silver Lining”, was welcoming received upon release and became featured on Spotify’s All New Rock playlist, followed by a humorous TikTok-themed music video.
THE DODIES songs jump head-first into depression, alienation and rage, contrasted by hooky riffs and catchy melodies. They’re a band that puts high importance on artistic integrity and uncompromising authenticity, always giving their full spirit in the studio and on stage.
“Having experienced the working dynamics with Bumblefoot before with our first record, making Floating in Limbo together was a natural step. The pandemic forced us to be creative and meet halfway between the states and Israel, in the Irish countryside, which turned out to be perfect. We were able to free our minds, with the right amount of studio time that allowed us to push our two-piece sound to new territories, but also kept us focused. We never sounded more live and bigger, yet so intimate and honest” says Ran Aronson.
Floating In Limbo baldy boasts the brilliance of the dynamic duo whilst only scratching the surface of what is yet to come from the pair. Having achieved nods and production accreditation with the likes of industry veteran Bumblefoot, THE DODIES have carved a path that proves not only promising but is certain to deliver a breath of fresh air for music lovers in pursuit of something new and exciting.
