Unmistakeable talent LOLA YOUNG today releases her brand new single ‘Bad Tattoo’, out on Island Records and available now via all DSPs – https://LolaYoung.lnk.to/
‘Bad Tattoo’ is an emotionally evocative and tragic love song from 20 year old Lola. The accompanying performance video displays Lola at her most authentic, with an utterly impressive vocal delivery filmed at The Church Studio where she has been working on new music over the past year. Lola is composed and in command as she describes the complexities of recovering from a toxic relationship, certifying herself as a story-teller with range, emotion and prowess way beyond her years.
Talking about the track, Lola explains; “Bad tattoo is a song I wrote about falling in love and not knowing whether it’s going to last, young love can be real hard sometimes. However I’ve recently realised the beauty in the temporary nature of love, the fact that it can come and go, it can leave you feeling the worst you could ever feel yet it can be the most beautiful thing in the world. Bad tattoo talks about the permanence of relationships, not necessarily lasting but the lasting effect it has on a person, the understanding and learning you must go through when experiencing life with some and finally coming to peace with the fact that it can leave you scarred like a real bad fucking tattoo”
Fiercely independent and exceptionally talented, 20-year-old Lola Young has an undeniable creative focus. As a live performer she is uncompromising – clearly showing the potential, spirit and individuality that makes her one of the UK’s most exciting new talents. Her work to date – the powerful singles ‘Ruin My Make Up’ and ‘Woman’, her debut collection of tracks ‘Intro’ and second release the ‘Renaissance’ EP, all received impressive critical acclaim
