Forming after the breakup of He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister, the husband and wife duo of KOLARS have stripped things back, focusing on filling the sound with minimal instrumentation. While Rob Kolar plays guitar, Lauren Brown tap dances atop a bass drum while playing a stand-up kit.
Yes. Tap dances.
“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.”
KOLARS’ tour will bring them all the way from California to New York.
