Bio

“Synth-heavy indie pop floating in melancholic drama” - it’s the perfect description from Lola Scott herself of her multi-faceted musical stylings. Over the past 12 months, the young Sydney-based artist has worked tirelessly on expanding her musical offering.

Established as a gun-for-hire, she has toured internationally as a guitarist, racked up a bunch of co-writes and most recently set up shop as a producer – all part of her steadily evolving face as artist set to be a force to be reckoned with.

Introduced to music by her Dad who loved new-wave, post- punk synth pop and alternative rock, she quickly began piano lessons, but her love for guitar sparked with lessons from age eight. The hobby became a full-blown obsession with classical guitar studies in high school and a degree to follow. playing in a heap of college bands punctuated the process, before Scott realised that the only way to tame her inner control freak was to start a solo project.

Along the way her childhood exposure to Joy Division, The Cranberries and New Order merged with current loves of artists including Banks, Broods and Maggie Rogers – all of which have had an impact in some way on where she has arrived as an artist, and furthermore the journey to come.

Lola Scott sounds world class on this track! Her last track, 'Warzone Of The Suburbs', was impressive but I reckon this elevates her to an exciting new level.

Heard Karla spin this over the weekend and it really stood out! Your love for synths is clear but certainly not overdone. There's drama but there's also balance and control. Everything just works really well!
