Of her debut record, Lola says

"Each track on this EP became an audial glimpse of a profound memory or experience, though elements might not be entirely factual it certainly feels like a written memoir in some way. I only hope it can trigger a specific reminiscence for the listener too.”


Lead single ‘Rendezvous’ is a retro-tinged ode to pansexuality and sexual fluidity. The story of the single holds a more poignant meaning than the up-beat crooney, Fosse inspired video lets out. Written about two same sex lovers and the social pressures of where they should sit with their sexuality and gender roles, the song recounts Lola's own experience at the time she began exploring her sexual identity. It details the challenges faced by two friends falling in love and fear of the judgement and stereotypes that came with it.

Standout track, ‘Here I Go’ is a duet featuring Americana & folk musician Robert Chaney. Lola describes the song, saying,

"I feel this is a relatable song for most people who have experienced a negative and frustrating shift in their relationship, showing signs of emotional separation and the disappointment that often arises when our desires are not being met. It implies a sense of resignation and a fear that you are missing out on something else."


“The E.P’s title was inspired by a time I had a lot of interpersonal difficulty, like most early-mid 20 year olds, I partied a lot, and was basically lolling through a lot of my problems, I remember just getting to a point where it felt like my mind split into two and I began internally arguing with

myself, everytime I fell into old habits. Just got to the point where I needed to get up, move on and sort my sh*t out,”

she says.

With Get Up Lola Wild emerges as an artist whose music promises to captivate, inspire, and resonate with audiences as they embark on their own journeys of self-discovery and personal growth. Prepare to be entranced by Lola's unique blend of genres, her thought-provoking storytelling, and the timeless melodies that are sure to linger in your soul.
