Turn the volume up! You’ve heard the band Taxi Doll three times on The Lying Game already–their songs “Give You More,” “Come To Me” and “Follow Lead” have played as a backdrop to Sutton and Emma’s drama. Now, get to know more about the band’s resident chick rocker, Dhana, and the new music they’re putting out (maybe you’ll hear on The Lying Game soon!).
Which is your favorite of the three songs featured on The Lying Game?
Dhana: It’s hard to say which is a favorite as each song is special in its own way. I do love playing “Give You More” live and there is a special FX video of the song created by MFactor that was super fun to shoot: http://bit.ly/mZHnQx
“Give You More” was also featured on The Secret Circle. What was the inspiration behind that song?
Dhana: Yes, and it was also just recently on 90210. I was inspired by the notion of wanting to be daring and not afraid of going for what you want. I wanted to be playful with the lyrics and a bit cheeky
You tweeted recently about writing new music. Are you working on another album?
Dhana: Yes, new music is definitely in the works. Going back to my dance/pop roots and writing some fun upbeat music. The latest single “Superstar” is the first of many songs to come soon http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/superstar-single/id459450720
What’s the most exciting part of being in a band?
Dhana: I love the band dynamic and the most rewarding part is feeling like you are family and have a blast together on stage.
Tell us more about you—where did you grow up, who inspired you to pursue music, etc?
Dhana: I grew up in Europe (Germany, Spain & England) and the boys in the band are from the Mid-West and California. We met in L.A. and immediately connected over music. Bands that inspire us are MGMT, The Killers, Goldfrapp, No Doubt, Blondie, The Sounds, Depeche Mode, just to mention a few…
What is something about Taxi Doll that fans would be surprised to know?
Dhana: That I am the only one in the band that can’t wiggle my ears LOL
X Factor or American Idol?
Dhana: Simon Cowell
Who’s been the coolest musician/band that you’ve worked with so far?
Dhana: Loved working with Ramin from Supreme Beings of Leisure — amazing artist/amazing producer
