The Zolas North American Tour Launches With SXSW Appearances

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 band previously shared anthemic synth-pop hit Get Darkand fuzzed out, guitar driven album title track “Swooner” which is a feminist anthem in its own right. Today they are thrilled to share the full album stream which premiered with Under The Radar today.


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 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.
