Hi Our Basement,
We are Lex Valentine & Nadia Valerie King, aka LOLAA, and we will be releasing a Spanish version of our debut EP, on June 8th. We premiered a video for “Espiritu” via NYLON Espanõl to announce before two performances during CMW. We will be touring the U.S. in July followed by Canadian dates August/September.
We were two-thirds of the punk/alt-rock power trio Magneta Lane, a project that began while still in high school, releasing multiple records for Paper Bag before other interests in life came calling. With LOLAA, we explore our Mexican heritage, taking inspiration from Latin American/80’s pop music/icons: Daniela Romo, Gloria Estefan, Kim Carnes, Laura Branigan, Debbie Harry, as well as the discotheque era: Donna Summer, Bianca Jagger, the lightness, the elegance, the dancing.
The plan for us was to always record the songs in Spanish, but naturally because we live in an English speaking country, we decided to start with what made sense in terms of geography.
Lex & Nadia, aka LOLAA
