My jaw dropped when I first heard this yesterday, the newest single by the Tel Aviv-based pop duo Lola Marsh. Toss in the Spaghetti-Western melody and the soaring orchestration and drifting vocals, and you’ve got all the makings of the next Quentin Tarantino film score. If he’s not working on one, he can use “Sirens” for inspiration. It’s the perfect late morning song to get lost in. And finding yourself in no hurry to be found.
Singer Yael Shoshana Cohen, guitarist Gil Landau formed Lola Marsh straight out of music school in 2013 and joined later by Mati Gilad on bass, Rami Osservaser on piano and guitar, and Dekel Dvir on drums. Their debut album is due out this summer from Anova Music. Find ’em on Facebook here. And see them at a dozen major European festivals over the next seven weeks.
Attention musicians, record label reps or fans: Got a suggestions for a Tune du Jour? I’d love to hear it.
Each weekday at 10:30am Eastern Time Piran Café spotlights a new or recently released song from smaller or independent labels to our rapidly growing audience. Genre? None. So long as it’s good. Suggestions are most welcome and encouraged – do get in touch. Please include press info about the song /album /artist, and links to video, audio or both. The more info, the merrier.
CURRENT FOCUS: Since I’ll be based in Colombia through the latter half of August, I’d love to focus as much as I can during that time on artists from South America. Obviously, exceptions will always be made. Just trying to keep it local. Thanks!
