Something about Lola Scott keeps bringing us back to obsessing over every new song she brings out. It could be her vocal ability that can be softly melodic and fiercely breathy, or maybe it's the totally relatable lyrics with tones of lively wit, or maybe it's just her absolute charm. Either way, we can’t stop listening to her latest track “I Wanted To Call Her But I’m Tragic And She’s Overseas (8 Months)” a collaboration with mate and electronic pop master Mel Blue.
A comment on Oscar’s (Mel Blue’s) ex partner moving overseas, Scott has put her clever narrative spin on the story to make it very Lola-esque.
“After a billion d n m’s & songs written about my life this session we delved into Oscar’s (Mel Blue) love life & drew inspiration from his experience in a long distant relationship. We talked about how we’d both get into relationships even if logically they were unlikely to work out. All the different little things you could do to try to make something work but in the end you are either on opposite sides of the world or from my perspective just dating someone who is from an alternate universe. Even though everything is against you being together there’s still part of you that wants to fake that the relationship is fine because you like how that person makes you feel.”
Staying true to her indie-pop styles with the addition of electronic soundscapes, “I Wanted To Call Her But I’m Tragic And She’s Overseas (8 Months)” is an iconic moment for Lola, leading us closer to her upcoming EP.
