Seven Questions In Heaven With The Aquadolls

Today we're spending Seven Questions In Heaven with The Aquadolls' singer Melissa Brooks!

Describe your music for our readers who may not be familiar with you.
Some songs are loud, brash, and wild, and others are more on the mellow side. It's music that you would want to put on when you're happy, angry, or feeling super badass.

Who are your musical influences and idols?
I adore Gwen Stefani and have always looked up to her since I became obsessed with No Doubt when I was a kid. My first concert was Gwen at the Anaheim Pond and her energy and voice totally changed my life. I also love Courtney Love, Madonna, Aaliyah, and Lolawolf.

What was the first album, cassette, or CD you bought with your own money?
Oops!... I Did It Again by Britney Spears.

What was the strangest gig you've ever played?
We've played some interesting gigs over the course of three years! One of the strangest but most amazing was our residency at The Goodland Hotel in Santa Barbara this last summer. We got to play poolside while fans danced around, and each time when the set was over, everyone would jump in the pool together! It was a mix of mostly fans and confused but entertained hotel guests. It was pretty awesome.

What is your current favorite guilty pleasure?
The 1975! But no shame. They are so good.

If they named an ice cream flavor after you, what would be the name and why?
Aquaberry. It would be blue and have blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and cookie dough bits mixed in. Man, this interview is making me hungry! (haha)

Final question: You're the opening act of a music festival. You can get any five artists, living or dead, to perform on the bill with you. Which five do you choose and what song do you all perform as the final jam?
Grimes, The Runaways, The Doors, Elvis Presley, and Lana Del Rey will all play their own sets, and then the grand finale will be during Elvis Presley's set when everyone gets together on stage and sing an epic version of "Jailhouse Rock," complete with confetti cannons filled with cash, a light show, and fireworks.
