Lolene – A First Look At The Electrick Hotel -out Summer 2010!

Posted in Promotions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2010 by dk

Watch Lolene, check in to The Electrick Hotel in this first look at her Capitol Records debut. The brand new trailer features audio clips of “Rich (Fake it Til You Make It),” “Lionheart,” and “Ordinary Girl” from the forthcoming release. The Electrick Hotel coming this summer.

Before she had recorded a note of her debut album, Lolene had already chosen its inspired title: The Electrick Hotel. “I call it The Electrick Hotel because when you put the album on, you’re my guest. I’m going to take care of you,” says the British singer, songwriter, and performer. “You’re invited to come and stay a while in my world, which I see as like a hotel where each song is a room that captures a different part of my personality and expresses different emotions. So if you’re feeling happy, you can go to the penthouse and dance to ‘Sexy People.’ If you’re heartbroken, you can visit the first-floor and have a cry to ‘Beautiful Disaster.’”

The concept, as well as the album’s giddy, whirling electro-pop sound dovetails perfectly with Lolene’s fierce, can-do attitude and positive spirit. The first single, “Rich (Fake It Til You Make It)” is “about living your life like you’ve already made it even if you haven’t got a penny to your name,” Lolene says, while “Sexy People” (Lolene’s debut club single that reached No. 5 on the Billboard Dance chart) insists that everyone has something sexy about them, “whether it’s your little toe or a strand of hair,” she says. “I wrote these songs at a time when everyone was miserable because of the recession. I wanted to come up with something fun and colorful that made people feel good.” Lolene shows a more vulnerable side on the thoughtful break-up ballad “Beautiful Disaster,” and the Euro pop-tinged love song “Lion Heart,” which is about having a brave and fearless attitude toward love. And then there’s the Nellee Hooper-produced “Ordinary Girl,” which could be Lolene’s mission statement with the following lyrics: “I’ll never be ordinary / Weird and wonderful / Strange is beautiful / I’ll never be an ordinary girl.”

“That song is about my unusual upbringing,” says Lolene, who was raised in Bristol, England, by a single mother. “I was just not the girl who was going to have four kids and live in the countryside. So I wrote a song about how it’s all right not to be ordinary for all the people out there who feel different and unaccepted.”

Lolene’s childhood was anything but ordinary. “Probably to compensate for my not having a father, my mum kept me occupied with dancing and singing lessons,” she says. “We didn’t have a lot of money, but she worked really hard to give me opportunities, so I’m really thankful to her.” In addition to studying tap, jazz, dance, and ballet (“I’ve been prancing around in a tutu since the age of two,” she says), Lolene also performed in local theater productions and television shows before discovering as a teen that music was her true calling. “Performing is all I know,” she says. “I was literally one of those annoying little stage kids, but it took my mind off of everything, so that was a good plan of my mother’s. Plus I was told my bum was too big for me to be a ballerina, so I thought, ‘Screw you, I’m off to be a pop star!’”

Lolene began writing songs and singing backing vocals for trip-hop artist Martina Topley-Bird (known for her work with Tricky) and local drum-and-bass pioneer Roni Size. After completing school, she moved to London and fronted an all-girl pop vocal group signed to a development deal at BMG Records. She wrote all the group’s material and realized she had a knack for writing melodies and lyrics.

It was during this time in London that Lolene acquired her nickname “Miss Foo Foo,” bestowed on her by a friend who watched Lolene drool over expensive items she couldn’t afford as the two window-shopped on London’s swanky Kings Road. “’Miss Foo Foo’ is the name of my company as well as my naughty alter ego,” Lolene says. “She’s the heightened, fabulous, eccentric part of my personality — the girl who wants it all right now. She lives in a world of heartbreak and handbags. She’s a chaser of dreams.” Miss Foo Foo is boujis (a British expression meaning to be fancy or posh) — the type who hangs out in London’s chic, ultra-private nightclubs.

Glam as it may have been, the London scene wasn’t enough to contain someone as driven as Lolene. Armed with nothing but a suitcase and a demo CD, she moved to Hollywood in search of her big break. Based on Lolene’s songwriting talent, multi-platinum producer Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem (Rick Ross, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Sean Kingston) signed her to his publishing label Beluga Heights/Sony ATV. She went to work collaborating with such heavy-hitters as Andreas Carlsson (Backstreet Boys, ’N Sync, Celine Dion), Christopher Rojas (Pink, Backstreet Boys, Joss Stone), Makeba Riddick (Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce), Evan Bogart (The Writing Camp), Danja (Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado, Timbaland), Harvey Mason Jr. (Underdogs), and Christina Milian, for whom Lolene penned the single “Diamonds” featuring Kanye West.

“My writing is where I get to explore other sides of my personality,” Lolene says. “It’s like acting — you get to play someone else for that song. But I didn’t just want to write for other people, I wanted to write songs for myself.” It was while working with Rotem that the idea for The Electrick Hotel came to her. “I never wanted to just be famous, I wanted to present a very clear vision about who I am and what I want to say to people. And that message is love,” Lolene says. “Ultimately, I’m an ambassador of love. I want to inspire people to be brave and live their dreams, whether it’s about a dream about being rich in love, rich in success, or just fulfilled in some way that is important to you. It’s about breaking down boundaries and just being a fearless person in the world.”

The Postelles have announced a July 27th release date for their eponymous debut album on Astralwerks/Capitol Records. The quartet from the Upper West Side of Manhattan, who formed in high school and are currently still just 21 to 22 years of age, co-produced the 11-song album with the Stroke’s guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. For the last two years, The Postelles have been feverishly working towards the release of their first album and refining their sound by playing everywhere from small clubs to major festivals around the globe, garnering attention from fans and critics each step of the way.

“We’ve been working at this for quite a while and still have a long way to go, expressed front-man Daniel Balk. But we’re so excited to release this album, to get out there and continue to tour and share our music and hopefully help some people have a little fun while we’re at it.”

While citing influences as diverse as the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Buddy Holly, Lou Reed and Sam Cooke, The Postelles are a difficult band to put in a box. One thing that critics agree on, is that The Postelles bring an element of refreshing fun and excitement to their catchy, upbeat tunes. Spin has said “they serve up a hooked-at-the-gills, head-bopping rock’n’roll groove,” while Rolling Stone has described The Postelles as “sounding like the wound-up early hours of what will be a long Saturday night on the town.” EW describes their sound as “sunny garage-bob,” with Q Magazine describes them as having “sheer charm and melodies that hook their way into your synapses and refuse to let go.”

In March The Postelles released a brand new EP White Night with three new songs, “White Night,” “Sleep on the Dance Floor,” and “Looking Glass,” and an exclusive remix of “Sleep on the Dance Floor” by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor. To celebrate the release of White Night, the Postelles are giving away a free download of the title track on their website They are currently in the midst of a nationwide tour with Hockey, they will be playing Spaceland on Monday, April 12th, and then a show at Skidmore College with The Walkmen on April 23rd. The Postelles will head to the UK in May to play a run of shows that include a Support Tour with The Futureheads, two shows at Camden Crawl and a show at Club NME at Koko, before returning home to play Bonnaroo and a record release show on July 28th at their favorite hometown venue, the Bowery Ballroom. The quartet has also appeared at Lollapalooza, All Points West, Iceland Airwaves, SXSW and CMJ, and played recent gigs with Vampire Weekend, Yeasayer, and Fanfarlo. They are expected to announce another string of US summer tour dates soon. The Postelles consist of Daniel Balk (lead vocals, guitar), David Dargahi (lead guitar), John Speyer (bass) and Billy Cadden (drums).
