PRESS KIT


THE NOLAS PRESS KIT The Nolas are an alternative rock band from Montreal, Canada formed in 2013. Explosive guitar riffs, catchy melodies and groovy drum beats make The Nolas distinctive and appealing to their fans. Having excited audiences in Canada, their music has been described as “Power Pop Rock” and “Surf Rock” evoking a “Tarantino-esque” style. “Best now band I’ve heard in a long time. Great musicians, great tunes, fun to watch, you’ve impressed me tonight!” Pierre Soupras, Milagro record label “Wow! Great sound, great songs. Cool, original and sexy. I love your style.” Marilene Belanger, artist manager and entertainment lawyer “Their sound automatically gave me the feeling of a modern twist on a very 70’s sound. It’s an extremely refreshing listen in an industry where it’s getting harder and harder to be original, or unique. The Nolas not only set themselves apart from the “norm”, but do it beautifully.” Heather Young, Canadian Beats

The Nolas released their self-titled debut EP in September 2015. The Nolas debuted on CBC Music Radio 3 (SiriusXM ch.162) song charts in the Top #30 December 2015 and Top #25 January 2016. The Nolas are set to perform at this year’s CMW 2016 in Toronto (May 2-8). TRACK LISTING (LINKS): 1. So Fine – 3:15 (1st Single) 2. Domino – 2:14 3. Dance the Night Away – 3:37 (2nd Single) 4.
