The track is the second single from upcoming EP 1/4 Life Crisis.
‘4E Jobless’ is a track that describes Lola Scott making the daunting transition from working to pursuing music full time. Packed full of relateable anxieties, cutting edge electronic sounds, and a thoroughly memorable and fun pop sheen, the track seems to be a resounding piece of affirmation that the artist has every reason to bet on herself.
The track expands upon the youthful and fresh-feeling nature of Lola’s sound, and does a remarkable job of feeling cutting edge and raw while maintaining and endearing vulnerability and instant, fun accessibility. The track is the perfect showcase of everything that Lola Scott is about, and hopefully represents the start of a serious ascent from the artist.
“This was the first time a had properly quit a job with notice & made the decision to go full-time focus into music.” Lola says of the track. “At the time, I was working for one of my best mates. I was so shit at my job & the only reason I didn’t get fired was that she was the manager. I’m a chronic daydreamer so I’d either be staring off into the distance mumbling lyrics or organising writing sessions (unless we were working together then we’d be having some tipsy banter). When I was writing this song I was joking about how I’d decided to retire this early in life & wondering how long it would be until I ran out of money & came back begging for my job. I’ve had plenty of people throughout my life ask when I was going to stop playing in a band & get a ‘real job’. My family were never those people but I was always encouraged to have a backup plan & had many people assume music was just a hobby. I’ve seen this same story play out with a lot of my musician friends & their families.”
