Vancouver’s prolific indie-pop band The Zolas return with their self-produced third studio album ‘Swooner’ set for release on March 4th via Light Organ Records. The record 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, showcased by stirring modern production.

SWOONER-Album Cover LoRes‘Swooner’ is highlighted by flashes of grungy hard-panned guitars, Prince-like synth flourishes, eurodance vocals, electric pianos and arpeggiators, all of which feel shockingly comfortable in their new homes. The band have now shared the new album title track Swooner via Billboard. A fuzzed out, guitar driven feminist anthem in its own right, vocalist/guitarist Zach Gray explains, “Swooner is about those high-functioning women we all know who somehow manage to be the quarterback of their squad and the best at their job and politically engaged and the most fun person to have real talk with over beers. I don’t know how you do it but we salute you.”

Revered for their kinetic live energy, The Zolas are set to kick off an international tour on February 6th which includes a series of appearances at SXSW this spring and a Canadian tour!
