KOLARS is a Los Angeles duo that blends rockabilly, disco, glam, and mod sounds with modern rock through minimal instrumentation: guitar and a tap-dancing drummer. As Rob Kolar sings and strums his rollicking guitar, Lauren Brown uses her whole body as a percussive instrument, tapping out the hi-hat rhythm with her feet atop a bass drum while simultaneously playing a stand-up kit, using dance to transform rhythms into natural extensions of her movement. It’s quite the workout and undeniably mesmerizing to watch. “We wanted to create dance music that combines all the genres of music we love, but with our own original twist,” says Kolar. “It's that idea of taking a pop song and getting people to move to it. To listen but also feel it in their bones.” The result is a kinetic, pulsing sound anchored in vintage style with a modern sensibility towards production.
