Tel Aviv-based Lola Marsh was formed after band members Gil Landau and Yael Shoshana Cohen met while studying music in school. The pair began writing, recording, and performing together before they were joined by Mati Gilad, Rami Osservaser, and Dekel Dvir.
What we love about this group is the combination of Middle Eastern and Western influences they draw on to create a completely unique alternative-folk sound. Similar to their first single, “Sirens,” their newest single, “You’re Mine” brings the same sultry-smooth vocals that slowly build and intertwine upbeat guitar melodies and subtle synths. It’s one of those tracks that just keeps building until you confront its breathtaking end. Just one listen and you’ll be hooked.
Their debut album doesn’t have an official release date yet, but is rumoured to be released later this year. With their knockout first singles and unique sound, Lola Marsh is staying on our “bands to watch” list for 2015.
