New Zealand-born, Los Angeles-via-Australia-via-NYC-based pop auteur Lucola Bang is an artist from many places, with many stories and many influences. On his eclectic and electric five-track debut EP What Of It? Bang's penned intricacies prove just as interesting as his wayward pop musicality. He's without a doubt, one of pop's most intriguing up-and-comers.
Born on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand’s north island, Lucola Bang (aka Luke Benge) began his musical journey as his country's first piano prodigy, winning Trinity College London's most advanced and highly regarded piano performance diploma. But progressive experimentation soon branded him as "too promiscuous" and he fled to Australia to escape his destroyed reputation.
But now in L.A to welcome his debut EP, Lucola is exactly who he wants to be on What Of It? Here, it's evident that Bang has found his voice and executed his vision to the fullest.
