Dolly is a French alternative rock band that released several major-label albums from the late '90s to the mid-2000s.
After the death of a bandmember in 2005, however, Dolly was put to rest and the surviving bandmembers formed a new band, Manú. Founded in 1989 in Nantes, Pays de la Loire, Dolly was originally a trio comprised of Emmanuelle Monet (vocals, guitar), Mickaël Chamberlin (bass), and Thierry Lacroix (drums). After releasing an EP, No One No Feeling (1992), and a full-length album, Amours Lynchées (1994), under the billing Dolly & Co., the band added Nicolas Bonnière (guitar) to its lineup in 1995 and changed its billing to simply Dolly. Influenced by English-language alternative rock icons such as Sonic Youth, Pixies, and especially PJ Harvey, the band made its eponymous full-length album debut as Dolly in 1997 on the label East West. Featuring the breakout hit single "Je N'veux Pas Rester Sage," Dolly was a modest commercial success, reaching the Top 40 of the French albums chart. While the follow-up album Un Jour de Rêves (1999) was similarly popular, reaching the Top 40 of the albums chart, successive albums Plein Air (2002) and Tous des Stars (2004) signaled a growing fan base, both reaching the Top 20. Unfortunately, Chamberlin died in a car accident on May 25, 2005, and the remaining bandmembers put Dolly to rest. In the wake of the band's breakup, Monet took a year off before putting together a new band, Manú, along with the other surviving Dolly bandmembers, plus Bayrem Ben Amor (bass) in the place of Chamberlin. Signed to a recording contract with Universal Music France, Manú made its full-length album debut in 2008 with Rendez-Vous. Thierry Niro (aka Nirox; drums) subsequently took the place of Lacroix in the band. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
