LOLAMARSH /// STRANGER TO MY PASTby David Pearl | 06.06.13
I woke up today and rushed to find new music that would comfort me: I needed a song that would help soothe the post-trauma of a bad dream, a song that would carry me into the beautiful wild and give my ears a chance to explore new, unfamiliar and yet still recognizable worlds.
I found my answer in LolaMarsh‘s beautiful music. LolaMarsh are Yael Shoshana Cohen, Gil Landau and the band Mati Gilad, Rami Osservaser and Dekel Dvir. Their music is a strange fruit in the local musical landscape; if I try to describe them, I would say that it sounds like the young Dolly Parton decided to go on to a musical trip with Laura Marling and Noah & The Whale and then arrived here to put a big show in the middle of the Middle East.
Yael’s voice is like a riddle – a magical voice from the deep forest combined with the music and words she writes with Gil – the man that is responsible for the great musical production of it all. Now, after 2 years of performing, writing songs and finding the right band members (and also taking a little time off for Yael to take part in the Israeli version of “The Voice”) they are working on their debut album out in 2013/14. Can’t wait…
