Lola Marsh is an Israeli indie pop band from Tel Aviv[1]. The band was formed as a duo in 2013 by Gil Landau (Guitars, Keyboards) and Yael Shoshana Cohen (Vocals)[2], and was quickly signed by the indie label Anova Music[3]. The group released their first EP, You're Mine, under Universal Records-Barclay in January 2016[4].


Gil Landau and Yael Shoshana Cohen met in Tel Aviv through mutual friends. The idea of the group was first conceived on February 2011 at Gil's birthday party, when they both found themselves outside of the in-crowd party, chanting out melodies while playing on Gil's father's old guitar[2].

For 18 months they wrote, recorded and performed what would be some of the songs in their future releases. At that point they sought to expand their sound by bringing on additional musicians[2].

Mati Gilad (Bass), Rami Osservaser (Guitar, Keyboards), Dekel Dvir (Drums and samplers) joined them shortly after[4]. The group started performing in local clubs. They were quickly spotted by the leading local indie label Anova Music who signed the band[5].

Lola Marsh's music combines deep, warm, nostalgic vocals, heart-on-the-sleeve-lyrics and enchanting guitar melodies[6][7]. Jason Grishkoff from Indie Shuffle described the band: "Lola Marsh does a superb job of slowly building up... bit by bit into something mesmerizing that has me waiting on bated breath for their debut album."

The duo gained notoriety on the heels of their 2014 performance at Primavera Sound Festival[4][3].

The band premiered their first single, "Sirens", via Nylon Magazine in March 2015; Nylon said of the song: "The Dreamy Tel Aviv Band's latest song, "Sirens", offers a twist on the typical sweet-yet-gritty indie sound...The track seems ready made for Quentin Tarantino's next film score.”[8] It quickly received millions of streams and reached number 5 on Spotify's list of the Top 10 Most Viral Tracks in the US. The song was later featured in the American TV show Scream.[9]

Following massive performances in leading festivals and after attracting media praise, they signed with Universal Music France and Sony ATV[10]

The band's second single, "You're Mine", was released in May 2015 via Pigeons and Plane[11]. It garnered over six million plays on Spotify and landed in the service’s top 3 Most Viral Tracks as well as in the top 3 of Hype Machine's Most Popular Tracks ranking.[12]

Lola Marsh's debut EP, You're Mine, was released in January 2016[13] [4]. Soon after, they released their first video for the title track of the EP. It was directed by Colin Solal Cardo, who also directed their La Blogotheque session.[14]

In April 2016 the band co-wrote an original song with Madsonik and Keith Power called "Drift And Fall Again", for the soundtrack of the feature film Criminal starring: Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman,Tommy Lee Jones.and more[15][16].

Their third single, "She's a Rainbow", was released in May 2016[1].

In March 2017 Their Single "Wishing Girl" was released and was accompanied with a video directed by Gal Muggia[17][7]. The song hit top 40 German radio charts.

The Band's debut album "Remember Roses" was released in June 2017 via Universal Records-Barclay , Sony ATV , Verve and Anova Music[18][19][20].

Following the album release the band toured Europe and the US playing Summer festivals such as Paleo festival[21][22], Montreal Jazz Festival [23],[24] Sziget festival.[25]

Lola Marsh contributed their song "Wishing Girl" to Ebay Germany commercial[citation needed] and covered Simon & Garfunkel's song "Mrs. Robinson" for French bank "Crédit Agricole" commercial. [26]

In February 2018 the band released live session recorded at Capitol Records Los Angeles. Lola Marsh was featured on NPR’s The Austin 100 in March 2018 as part of a SXSW event feature [6]. Later that month, the duo performed multiple shows at SXSW[27][28].

They cite Sufjan Stevens, Nina Simone, Fleet Foxes, Elvis, Mood Blues, Bon Iver, MGMT and LCD Soundsystem as major influences in their music[28].

Lola Marsh recorded a cover of Frank Sinatra's song "Something Stupid" for "AMC" network show: "Better Call Saul" (Season 4) aired September 2018[29][30][31][32][33]
