Today The Kinks' hit song "Lola" is turning 50 years old, and the Davies brothers have declared it #LolaDay today.
Ray Davies and his girlfriend Karen invited us to record our own cover version if this iconic song. OF COURSE, we were on board, how could we not? We love this song, we love The Kinks, we love this album.
There is something so unorthodox, unapologetic and poetically blunt about The Kinks' music. The predecessor to punk. Untamed yet melodic, introspective, witty and observational in the most creative, captivating way. Nothing gives you a more vivid picture of parts of British culture than diving into a Kinks album. Their song "Waterloo Sunset" in our opinion is one of the most beautiful songs EVER written. We love these guys.
We hope we did this song proud and that you enjoy our take on this absolute classic. Please leave a comment underneath the video (on YouTube or on our website post) and share your thoughts with us.
