Dreaming is the beautiful new single from Birmingham singer/songwriter Lola Carmel. The song makes justice to its title by blending infectious R&B beats and vocals with a eerie, dream-like vibe.
Lola suffered a knee injury which meant she was bedridden for 9 weeks. In that time she wrote 26 songs, Dreaming being amongst them. Lola says “I wrote the track while dreaming about still maintaining a friendship after a break up and honestly wishing the best for that person. It was written about the last serious relationship I had”. Lola shot the music video in Cornwall where she frequents with her family every year, growing up along with her ex-boyfriend.
Lola’s previous single Nublet was featured on Billboard Sound and Noisebeast, and won Lola a loyal fanbase in the UK and abroad. Lola started singing at stage school when she was just two years old, and since then her uncle has been educating her on soul, motown and reggae.She’s performed at the town hall in Birmingham, the national choir, a musical called Luther, BBC radio and 4od. She honed her writing skills at poetry workshops with Benjamin Zephaniah and has been writing her own songs ever since.
