This Friday Lola Colt, a six piece from London, named after a 1967 Spaghetti Western film, are making their Nottingham debut at The Bodega.Their psych-filled live shows have lead them to create a name for themselves over the past few years. At the end of last year they released their eagerly anticipated debut album, 'Away From The Water' and it has had great reviews describing them as "brooding psychedelic rock" and "sexy yet hypnotic".

We had a chat with Matt from the band in the build up to the show...

1. How is the tour going so far?

Splendidly! It's the first time we've played in many of the cities/towns - it's really exciting to finally get the chance.

2. You’ve recently released your debut album, how have you found the response to it?

The response has been quite incredible, and fascinating. We slaved over the thing for so long it was strange to finally send it out into the world, and to hear people's reactions to it. 

3. What are your main influences in your song writing and the sounds you create?

Primarily inspiration comes from emotion, trying to tap into the way something feels and visualise it, then dissect and manipulate it, explore it and better understand it.

4. Do you have a favourite song to perform live?

It depends on the night and the feeling in the room, but Away From The Water - the title track from our debut album - is always good fun. There are moments in that song where we are all guns blazing, the loudest point in the set.

5. We’re excited to have you here at The Bodega. Are you looking forward to playing in Nottingham?

 Very much so! Nottingham is one of the cities we've never played before - we really cannot wait!
