Lola Colt is named after the 1967 spaghetti western directed by Siro Marcellini and starring Lola Falana. The film is also known as Black Tigress which is also the name of Lola Colt‘s label.
My thoughts… Lola Colt has such an awesomely unique sound! I love Gun O.’s distinctive vocals against the band’s twangy and fuzzy guitars in their songs that hypnotize as they slowly build to fiery crescendo! Away from the Water is an amazing album and I’m excited for the followup!
