Driving Lolita, a band founded by erstwile Radio1 DJ/ producer D-Code set to release their first single “Swing Me Round Your Head” next month.
Other members of the group include Abrar Hafiz, co-founder of ‘Sona Fariq’ in the late 90’s, relentlessly touring whilst signed to Warner Music and Graziella, from 2009’s X-Factor group Miss Frank, raised on soul and blues with a unique vocal style.
With the accompanying remixes from Bambooclart, Earbleed, Barbarix and others inc myself getting released on the lead up to their launch night on the 14th March at Proud Camden, there’s a lot to watch out for ;)
The bands sound consists of hard hitting basslines, percussion and sassy lyricism over guitar riffs oozing sex appeal.. the remixes warp and mangle the blueprint further over warped breaks, percussion and deep sub..
The vocals melt between Blues, Jazz and spoken word with sass over thick guitar riffs with a rebellious edge..
Here’s the Barbarix Remix;
The remix above can be heard, releasing on the 17th March 2014
