Lola Blanc, Augsburg-native singer-songwriter, debuts EP.
Lola Blanc released her debut 5-track EP last week through LB Music, an independent record label by the singer-songwriter who has written a hit record for Britney Spears. Now that I’ve been to a circus, I can agree with the description and comparisons her music has garnered. Magical, mysterious and much like a circus, Lola Blanc’s music is a well-marketed fantasy. In the past, we’ve covered “Don’t Say You Do” and “The Magic.”
Now we can enjoy three more songs. In short, “Real Boy” is a song about Pinocchio-type humans. “Fly Away” is softer and slower. It sounds like it is was made for Lana Del Rey. “One Eye Open,” on the other hand, is about the loss of trust. Imagine sleeping with one eye open.
