‘Away From The Water’ is the highly acclaimed debut album from London six piece Lola Colt. Produced by Bad Seed Jim Sclavunos, the album has been intricately crafted by the songwriting partnership of vocalist Gun Overbye and lead guitarist Matt Loft through a cinematic style born of a mutual love of vintage film and visual soundscapes.
Hailed as one of London’s most exciting and captivating live bands by fans and critics alike, Lola Colt have been taking audiences by storm. Their shows have been described as “a spellbinding and dramatic experience with both sonic and visual intensity”, and they make certain every show feels like a special event.
Crystallising their breathtaking live experience into physical form has been an intense and challenging experience, as Matt explains: “Our music is pure escapism and the thought of recording it felt strangely like trying to put up walls around a dream. What we strived to create is a timeless record that takes the listener on a journey to a different place with each listen”.
‘Away From The Water’ is out now through Fuzz Club Records including a sold-out limited edition silkscreen gatefold coloured vinyl, and is supported by a full UK and European tour, as follows:
