This July: Lola Colt release Moonlighting!

CP - Lola Colt - Moonlight Mixing We’d been keeping an eye out for developments with LOLA COLT since TWO of our main reviewers – “from the moment Lola Colt came on I knew this was going to be a special gig” / “fresh and exciting” – waxed lyrical about them in the early days of Carabas.
Well we just heard about their next single Moonlight Mixing being released – got a bit of a tingle listening to as well – so figured we’d best get something up straight away. Here’s the publicity with the song on Soundcloud embedded below.

Enjoy!

From Hannah Gould PR:

LOLA COLT RELEASES NEW TRACK MOONLIGHT MIXING (RADIO EDIT) TAKEN FROM FORTHCOMING SECOND ALBUM TWIST THROUGH THE FIRE CP - Lola Colt
BOTH OUT OUT 1 JULY ON BLACK TIGRESS RECORDS
Lola Colt have released brand new track Moonlight Mixing, a punchy psych-rock-meets-60’s-beat-group-pop blast of unadulterated energy. Gun’s commanding vocal sings the refrain “sugar for my baby” over swirling organ, jangling guitars and driven drums.

Described as a “banging, catchy single” by The Independent and a “spellbinding slice of psychedelia” by Gigslutz who premiered the track here, the single will be officially released digitally on 1 July, but can now be streamed and shared in advance via Soundcloud [See below – Carabas]
