Tel Aviv based duo, Lola Marsh are gearing up to release their wistful and dreamy debut album, Remember Roses, on June 9th, which reminds us of Feist meets Lana Del Rey meets Edward Sharpe.
Put them together, and singer Yael Shoshana Cohen and multi-instrumentalist Gil Landau mount a charm offensive powerful enough to knock down some pretty sturdy defences. The Israeli musicians distill their sound down to a small set of spare, ingratiating ingredients. In the case of their new track “Wishing Girl,” those building blocks are simple but potent: a whistled hook, Landau’s briskly strummed ukulele and Cohen’s voice, which dispenses sweetly plainspoken lines like, “You are my lonely star / And I’m, I’m your wishing girl.”
To celebrate the release of their new album, we asked them to curate their perfect summer playlist. Check it out below!
