Every Tuesday this month, a new track will be available for download at www.drivinglolita.com – starting with the JMist remix, coming out tomorrow.
Ed King will be heading down the M1 later this month, to give Driving Lolita their ‘& Beyond’ Birmingham Review; but not before clawing through some of the band’s portfolio.
Driving Lolita is the brain child of Drum & Bass producer and Radio 1 presenter, D-Code; in a move to create an “organic, rough round the edges” new sound.
Guitarist Abrar Hafiz (previously bass & vocals for Sona Fariq) ‘provides the grit’, layering constant Punk riffs over a fearsome Big Beat backdrop; with vocalist Graziella Affinita (Foreign Beggars, Miss Frank) punching out a cross vocal approach, steeped in Blues and Hip Hop.
Created with a live sound in mind, Driving Lolita “popped our cherry” at The Nest in Dalston – in Nov 2011.
Spending the subsequent two years “road testing” their live show, Diving Lolita have played stages halfway around the world – from Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, to the NH7 festival in Pune, India.
