Named one of the “Best New Seattle Bands” by Seattle Magazine, Lemolo is a dream-pop duo comprised of Poulsbo natives Meagan Grandall and Kendra Cox. The girls became instant friends as kayaking instructors on the waters off of Lemolo Shore Drive, where they learned of their shared love for music and adventure. It didn’t take long for them to begin performing together and making their mark in the Seattle music community. The energy these two produce live is a “force to be reckoned with,” according to Three Imaginary Girls, and Sound on the Sound adds that Lemolo leaves the listener “aching for more.” Along with receiving generous reviews for their album and live shows, the duo has opened for Sharon Van Etten and Allen Stone, toured with The Head and the Heart, performed at Capitol Hill Block Party, City Arts, Music Fest NW, Bumbershoot and the Dave Matthews Band Caravan Festivals, performed on KEXP 90.3 FM and sold out their album release show in only eleven hours. Lemolo released their debut full length album, The Kaleidoscope, on July third, and they look forward to what lies ahead.
“I’m torn between writing 'this Lemolo album is seriously haunting me' and 'Lemolo could totally beat up your favorite synth-y indie dream-core band' because they’re both true. Their music is smarter and more gripping than anything I’ve heard in this genre before, and the emotion-pendulum they swing on is more vast. Whichever way you slice it, The Kaleidoscope is a keeper." -Three Imaginary Girls
"The Kaleidoscope a very impressive first album. We need more women musicians like Lemolo breaking out of the Northwest indie scene.” - Seattle Times
"Heavenly, haunting pop duo Lemolo is riding a wave. The duo spent much of 2012 making figurative splashes with its fast-selling, self-released debut, The Kaleidoscope, which has lingered on local bestseller charts since its release in early July. Lemolo’s sound swims the murky waters between mellifluous, beguiling pop and darker, unsettling tones and themes. On stage, when the girls’ eyes aren’t locked in intense dialogue with each other, they’re often closed, seemingly lost in an embrace with internal muses." - City Arts Magazine
