Two years after selling out and winning over the smaller of our two halls, the charming Lola is making a grand return, to our main hall and with a fresh album, released in June 2017! In the meantime, Lola Marsh has taken her enticing indie-folk-pop to larger and larger crowds at festivals such as Pohoda, Primavera Sound, Exit, Pukkelpop, Tallinn Music Week and numerous others.
When announcing the band’s first concert in Šiška, we wrote that Lola Marsh sounds as if Quentin Tarantino directed a meeting between Lana Del Rey and Calexico in the Negev desert – and that still stands!
Lola Marsh is an indie-folk-pop band from Tel Aviv, founded by Gil Landau and Yael Shoshana Cohen, who met while studying music and soon started writing, composing and performing together. It didn’t take long for them to be joined by Mati Gilad (bass), Rami Osservaser (guitar, piano) and Dekel Dvir (drums).
The band first left a noticeable international impression in 2014 at the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, after which deals started pouring in. The group signed to Universal Music and a major concert agency.
Lola’s first single ‘Sirens’, released in March 2015, racked up a million plays and climbed to fifth place on Spotify’s list of the most viral songs in the USA. Its follow-up ‘You’re Mine’ did even better, with eight million plays on Spotify and third place on the above-mentioned list. In the beginning of 2016, the band released its first EP, with its full-length debut Remember Roses released in June 2017.
Folk singer-songwriter Agata Karczewska draws inspiration from musicians such as Laura Marling and Elliott Smith, describing her sound as “musical minimalism”, where a mere guitar and vocals are used onstage to generate real power. Her dazzling voice and country charisma won over viewers of the Polish iteration of American Idol, and she released her debut EP You’re Not Special in April.
