Sonically, Lola’s Bad is best described as future music: a mash up of avant-garde and doom pop electro commanded by a swathe of multi-coloured vocals skilfully summoning a post-digital emotional impact. Behind Lola’s Bad is the multi-disciplinary artist of no fixed abode, Evangelia C - currently residing in London, Greek native, raised in NYC & Crete.
Singer/ Songwriter/ Filmmaker Evangelia C took her first steps in live performance art as a radical dancer, choreographer & performer with collaborations in both underground and well established music and theatre scenes of Athens. She began experimenting with “cinematic theatre” in 2009 when she directed her first theatre piece, “Fire Walk With Me”, a “live cinema” physical theatre adaptation of David Lynch’s famous film. The following year she moved to London, completed an MA in Performance in Central St Martins and produced a series of short films which screened in various festivals & exhibitions. In search for live musicians for her physical performance “Heavy Metal” as part of the Mediterranean Biennale 2011, she met acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Bat Halliday who has since become her close collaborator and producer. Together they also wrote the music for her next performance piece “No Dog in This Fight” which they performed at the Deathtripping festival alongside Lydia Lunch in 2012. After much experimentation with live theatre directing, Evangelia felt the need to channel her creativity into the creation of more “forever-lasting” material and so she started Lola’s Bad, her all DIY music and video project with the help of Bat Halliday and a small team of dedicated creatives based in Greece and London. In November 2012 she released her debut single “Drown With Me”. Her new EP is set for release in April.
