The Zolas latest record Swooner marks a major departure from both the cabaret rock of 2009’s Tic Toc Tic and the atmospheric minimalism of Ancient Mars. This time around the band dove headlong into vibrant, experimental pop, stirring modern production into the influences that surrounded them as kids growing up in the ‘90s.
“This is the most ‘us’ of anything we've done,” frontman Zach Grey observes. “It’s fun to be in an era of music where people are ready to appreciate messed up combinations of influences, and we had a good time pushing that.”
2016 saw the band achieve their highest radio chart position yet (’Swooner’ reached #2 on the alternative chart), tour Canada, Germany, and abroad to sold out crowds, and win Alternative Group of the Year at the Indie Awards.
The Zolas are showing no signs of slowing down in 2017 as they head into the studio to build on Swooner’s success.
Creative BC is proud to support The Zolas as part of the BC Music Fund’s Sound Recording Program.
