What do you get if you cross the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino style Spaghetti Western with Edith Piaf? Maybe Lola Marsh, a dreamy pop duo from Tel Aviv. Last summer they wowed European crowds and have since signed to Anova Music. An album is in the works, in the meantime check out the single, “Sirens.”
“While recording ‘Sirens,’ our drummer got stuck in traffic and was really late,” says the duo, made up of Gil Landau and Yael Shoshana Cohen. “But when he arrived he told us he made use of his time in traffic and wrote down the ending orchestral arrangement which made us totally forgive him for being late.” The song features vintage guitar riffs by Gil Landau against a soaring orchestra string section and lead singer Yael Shoshana Cohen’s nostalgic voice.
Keep an eye out for this band and for their upcoming album later this year.
