Portsmouth underdog Lola Coca bowls through our speakers with an unapologetic stride, carrying her love for 90’s Hip-Hop and Ska along for the journey. London situated, the lyrically poignant Popstress has a way with words, simultaneously both playful, frank and nonchalant. Her smooth vocal tone spans between the goal posts of disinterest and a swan provoked.
Her background blending genre is somewhat reminiscent of British cult classics; The Streets, Gorillaz, and Basement Jaxx, only this time presented as a stand alone “one-(wo)man-band”. Lola Coca has been working alongside London’s own multi-instrumentalist, writer-producer Stefan Skarbek (Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse) and legendary mixing engineer, Tony Maserati (Beyonce, Notorious B.I.G.).
