Lola Tried

Austin, Texas

 Taking influence from the likes of Swearin' and Lemuria, Lola Tried  combines catchy power-pop hooks with noisy, garage-esque choruses. Lola Tried has toured nationally in support of their self-titled LP, and have played with international touring acts such as Speedy Ortiz, A Giant Dog, Rozwell Kid,  Boy Toy, and Tera Melos. Lola Tried played as an official SXSW showcasing artist this year, after completing their 3rd national tour.

Lola Tried celebrates the sloppiness of raw feelings, of bruises both emotional and physical. The Austin quartet’s self-titled debut plunges forward, electrified and crunchy, imbued with the ethos of DIY garage rock polished to a glittering, power-pop sheen. Live, guitarist/singer Lauren Burton’s a headbanging blur of red hair and attitude, and that same sass feels palpable across Lola Tried’s 10 swaggering tracks.

Touring on the heels of the release of its self-titled full-length album, Lola Tried has solidified as a band over the last three years and has just begun to hit its stride. On the album’s single, “Bummertown,” powerful guitars rip through melodic riffs as Burton shifts between singing sweetly and growling ferociously. At other times, the record harnesses lighter tones and garage pop sensibilities backed by earnest lyricism.

A four-piece with the fierce energy of frontwoman Lauren Burton at the helm, the group thrives on raw energy from pushing each other to new creative levels. They’ll tell you music is about two things: enjoying time with each other and connecting with the audience. Check out their dynamic live show.

“Regardless of the song’s subject matter, Burton has an uncanny ability to tell an interesting story and pen music to it that’s contagiously catchy without being at all pedestrian. Sometimes that story is about depression, sometimes it’s about being angry and exhausted (heard that), and other times it’s just a cool story. Picking one song to showcase from their debut full-length is difficult; each track has that “no wait, this is my favorite song…” quality, exemplifying the incredible talent bubbling from Austin’s underground music scene.
