Treefort: Lola Marsh

El Korah Shrine, March 21

by

The music of Israeli pop duo Lola Marsh is road trip magic. Its fusion of burbling electronic and acoustic sounds, and layers of pure vocals make it the perfect soundtrack for staring out a window and watching the landscape flash by. Formed in Tel Aviv in 2013, the partnership of Yael Shoshana Cohen (lead vocals, percussion, ukulele) and Gil Landau (guitar, vocals) quickly sent ripples worldwide, and Cohen's unmistakable voice helped the pair land a spot at the European Primavera Sound music festival in 2014. Though it was three more years before Lola Marsh's debut album, Remember Roses (Anova Music, 2017), hit shelves, a slew of singles and an EP made the band a favorite on Spotify and helped keep it in listeners' minds. NPR Music calls the duo's hit, "Wishing Girl," off Remember Roses, a "moodily ingratiating charm offensive"—and really, that phrase can be applied to Lola Marsh as a whole. When deciding who and what to see during Treefort Music Fest 2018, Lola Marsh should be on your agenda.
