Lola Wild are a London-based duo delivering a uniquely sombre debut, ‘Sand’. This project came together when the pair found commonalities in their obsessions with film noir, the indie scene and a more traditional slant on a musical vision. Lola Wild like to describe their sound as a proud and probable product of ‘beach house hanging out with Tarantino’.
The lead vocals call upon classic elements of pioneering singers like Billie Holiday and Roy Orbison. Dream-like backing vocals ride through all 4.28 minutes of the track, joined by boisterous building guitar.
“Sand is inspired by themes of Mrs Dalloway, a novel by Virginia Woolf. Leaping between past and present, thoughts of past loves and losses, and reminiscing on what she could have had, now that she is an older woman”.
