As she climbs on stage, the crowd is shouting with joy. Her microphone is covered in flowers and her colourful organza playsuit instantly makes you notice her extravagant and cheerful presence. Just like her outfit, Lola’s music is a mix of different genres. As the band begin to play jazzy sounds, the DJ joins the ensemble with funky beats. Lola Coca is somewhat reminiscent of mid-2000 popstars Lily Allen and Gwen Stefani, and we even recognised a sample from Kelis’ Trick Me in one of her songs.

When she starts singing one of her best known songs, ‘Bad Girlfriend’, we immediately realise she is not one to mess with.
We were already happy with spring but Lola makes us feel like it’s summer…
