Low Life Lolas, fronted by songwriter Renee Parr, is a Toronto-based indie-rock quartet whose haunting, bittersweet pop songs evoke a hint of nostalgia.
Inspired by contemporaries like Alvvays, Hop Along, and Bad Bad Hats, Parr places melody front and center, crafting memorable hooks that underscore stories of struggle, heartbreak, and queer love. Through the lens of her Northern Ontario upbringing, Parr's songs challenge the confines of urban life with allusions to the unforgiving Canadian wilderness -- and the beautiful and dangerous creatures that inhabit it. Their debut EP Wolves, produced by Ian Blurton, was released May 10th, 2019.
