Chess Club signees Coach Party unleash frenetic indie-pop gem “Oh, Lola”

27 November 2019, 11:09 | Written by Rob Carroll

Isle of Wight quartet Coach Party offer an introspective take on rising above life’s often mundane existence through friendship, alongside an endearing accompanying video for their new track “Oh, Lola”.

Opening with an upbeat and brazen energy, Coach Party's “Oh, Lola” boasts fuzz-laden bass and steadfast drums amidst ringing spaced-out guitars. Lead vocalist Jess Eastwood’s compelling melodies follow suit, wasting no time transitioning into the infectious sing-a-long chorus.

As the track unfolds, its undeniable vigour is maintained through interchanging between its snappy verses and charismatic chorus, before a chaotic bridge is led by a mesmerising surf-rock inspired guitar solo. The stripped-back outro caps off an impressive slice of meticulously composed indie garage-pop.

“No matter how boring, frustrating and dumb life is, ‘Oh, Lola’ is that one friend we all have that when you're together you overcome all of that negativity and just have fun,” says Eastwood. “That's what ‘Oh, Lola’ is about.”

The group, who grew up and still reside on the Isle of Wight, recently signed to Chess Club Records; the label responsible for helping launch the careers of indie luminaries Jungle and Wolf Alice, as well as newcomers Alfie Templeman and Yaeger.

“Oh, Lola” is out today via Chess Club Records. Find Coach Party on Facebook.
