In April 2011, I felt the need to try something new. So I decided to study 60s and 70s rock’n'roll, sample dusty guitar sounds from classic records and set up a live recording studio.
After a 7 month bout of writing, forming, auditioning and rehearsing, Driving Lolita played their debut gig at The Nest in Dalston in November 2011. This snowballed really quickly with lots of live shows around London. Our noise caught ears at the BBC who booked us to play the Introducing stage at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend in 2012. That started a run of main stage festival gigs, an international tour and a Maida Vale session.
In 2014 we released our debut self-titled LP which you can grab here
