LA Power Duo Nomad & Lola Premiere Cover Mash-up “Summertime / While My Guitar Gently Weeps”
From sunny LA, the musical power duo, NOMAD & LOLA bring seductive and fiery darkness with their new single “Summertime/While my Guitar Gently Weeps”. The duo creates a somber yet gorgeous mash-up of two iconic stories in their new white-hot single from two favorited classics by Nina Simone and George Harrison. The striking instrumental and vocal enchantment will leave any audience begging for another listen.
Reflecting on their new single, LOLA divulged on how the mashup was born, ““The juxtaposition of our dark mashup for the American classic ‘Summertime’ blended with another one of our all-time favorite songs ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, is the perfect pairing in our minds. The fact that George Harrison is Nomad’s favorite Beatle and Nina Simone is one of the greatest rich-toned voices of all time is the cherry on top!”
