Bio

Emerging from the southern highlands of NSW, Lola Scott shook off her country shackles and made a name for herself amongst Sydney’s music scene. She is a multi-instrumentalist with a degree in guitar, a love for synth, and raw but ethereal vocals that will draw you in with the first word. And with her upcoming single ‘Hush’ they spit you back out, not afraid to explore darker themes with her poignant lyricism, the single follows a toxic love story twisted with jealousy and fear.

A book scribbled with hundreds of song lyrics and ideas, Lola Scott has been writing since she heard her first Avril Lavigne masterpiece. After growing up listening to Joy Division, The Cure and Zeppelin, she made her way to her current influences which include Wolf Alice, Emma Louise and Lianne La Havas,. Ensuring a truly unique blend and cementing Lola Scott’s intensely original sound.

Lola Scott’s debut release comes amidst touring with Asta, and with her band Yetti Calzone, who co-headlined “Sounds of the Suburbs” with Skeggs and Camp Cope. Proving she’s saved the best for herself, ‘Hush’ and her upcoming EP are like nothing you’ve heard. The track is recorded and co-produced by Dave Hammer (Washington, Nicole Millar) with drums by Miles Thomas (Montaigne) and with all other instruments played by Lola Scott herself.

The video accompanying the track is up for release shortly, featuring videography from Hannah Dougherty and emotional improvisational choreography from NY dancer Ogemdi Ude. The video perfectly reflects Lola Scott’s ability to take the vulnerable and make it powerful.

Yeah, definitely has that Washington/Sarah Blasko/Emma Louise vibe. Vocals are stunning, keen to hear where you'll take this.
