Israel’s Lola Marsh releases a powerhouse of disco-infused pop with lead single from the album ‘Shot Shot Cherry’ out now via Universal’s Polydor Records. Yael Shoshanna Cohen and Gil Landau started work on Shot Shot Cherry while locked down in their respective apartments in Tel Aviv. Their mesmerizing new video weaves colorful retro textures together with powerful lyricism, and offers a sense of cathartic release from the lockdown that began so surprisingly in 2020. This commanding track was written in part as a way of dealing with the sudden cancellation of their European tour in the early days of the pandemic.

The music video, created with the help of director and architect A.T. Mann, was filmed at Ramon International Airport, a building he designed. Lola Marsh unleashes their musical energy in the airport’s empty halls, rooftop, and tower—against a lively, danceable backdrop informed by the edgy, magnetic pop sound that has taken the world by storm and results in hundreds of millions of streams of their music. Among many highlights so far, Cohen and Landau co-wrote a song for the 2016 Kevin Costner film Criminal, recorded a cover of Frank Sinatra’s ‘Something Stupid’ for the AMC series Better Call Saul in 2018, and contributed their song ‘Only For A Moment’ to the 2022 Netflix movie Purple Hearts.

The release of their album marks a bright future for Lola Marsh, as they continue to push their sound in new directions. Their music is modern and fresh, with a mix of electronic pop flourish and synthesizers combined with orchestral melodies that hint at throwback greats like Donna Summer and Sister Sledge.

The world’s about to end
So drink up and pretend

‘Shot Shot Cherry’ was written in a time of global uncertainty. In the middle of our European tour, we had to stop everything and return home because of the covid outbreak. We were feeling depressed, helpless and like the rest of the world, all we could do was wait. So we wrote this song, and it was like the lyrics wrote themselves. — Lola Marsh

The rise to fame for this eclectic duo began in 2016 with the release of an impressive debut EP, You’re Mine.
