Lol K are a duo from South London comprised of CJ Calderwood and Junior XL. Their second e.p, The Breeze, was released via Halcyon Veil in 2020, following on from their debut project Born Under a Bad One, released via the collective Curl.
Through chaotic, frequently harmonious genre mutations, Lol K create a sonic vision that defies category. They draw inspiration from disparate sources such as post classical, grunge, and contemporary club music. Lol K’s live show utilises electronics, wind instruments, guitar, piano and vocals to take apart and re-contextualise their recent output.
Boomkat on ‘The Breeze’ ...“intricately woven, asymmetric and offbeat drill/pop from London’s Lol K, starring vocals by Coby Sey and LA Timpa. It’s a shockingly strong followup to their debut EP for Mica Levi and co’s Curl Recordings, developing a crafty set of queer, sensuous pop, configured in brilliant, surprising ways for Halcyon Veil. Highly recommended if yr into Vegyn, Mica Levi, Tirzah, Yves Tumor”
