Dolores is a female pop duo consisting of Ana Srećković and Marija Vukčević, philologists by profession, musicians by passion.

The project was created in the first half of 2020, as a means of creative expression during the pandemic and restrictive measures. It takes its defined and final form through cooperation with one of the most talented young producers in our region, Petar Wagner, better known as Fantom. He recognizes the musical expression of this original duo and uses his production magic to make it exactly the way it should be.

Dolores find inspiration for their music in new wave music, in the bands of the eighties and nineties of the last century, but also in the music of contemporary alternative bands from the countries of the former Yugoslavia. In their songs, Dolores devote themselves to the topics of everyday life, mostly dealing with real problems and feelings of imaginary characters.

The name of the project alludes to the Spanish revolutionary Dolores Ibárruri, better known as La Pasionaria, as well as to the Irish musician Dolores O’Riordan. As well as being a tribute to female strength, Dolores is also a reminder of the philological background these two authors share. Their first single “Šta te radi” is an electro pop story about the search for answers, regret over missed opportunities, and uncertainty brought by the unknown. The single is also an announcement for their EP that will be released in the foreseeable future.
