Since 2015, we have asked independent artists to share their favorite memories from their time at SXSW. In just three years, this project has become one of our most popular features thanks to the growing interests of bands and singers from around the world. These memories are from Lola Marsh.

Based out of Tel Aviv, Israel and founded by Gil Landau and Yael Shoshana Cohen, Lola Marsh caught our attention back in 2015 when they released the sublime “You’re Mine”. At the time, they were an emerging band just finding their footing. Three years later, they are one of Israel’s biggest indie bands with their mix of synth-pop, indie-rock, alt-folk, and cinematic indie. Their debut album, ‘Remember Roses’, showcases their multi-genre approach (as well as Cohen’s Lana Del Rey-like vocals), making them the perfect fit for SXSW. The only question for us was – what took the festival so long to invite them? 

This was our first time at SXSW festival. We performed nine times on all kinds of stages, saw cool shows, and met new friends! One of the best shows we saw was from a British band called Flyte. They played in a church and decided to give an acoustic performance. It was absolutely breathtaking! Beautiful songs, legendary melodies, and the harmonies of their voices penetrated our hearts and we realized that we had witnessed a rare performance.

Yaeli was the bravest among us and invited them to one of our shows, and they really came a few days later! Our show was at the Maggie Mae’s at 6th Street and they greatly enjoyed it.

It was really fun to sit with great musicians who turned out to be really nice people and to compliment each other!

We also had a very cousy house in Austin with the most cutest cat! We miss her!

In addition to Landau (guitars/vocals) and Cohen (lead vocals/percussion/ukulele), Lola Marsh include Mati Gilad (bass/vocals), Rami Osservaser (guitar/keyboards/vocals),Dekel Dvir (drums/vocals), and Ran Gil (keyboards).
