“It’s hard and weird not to know how your day begins.” Vancouver’s emerging indiepop duo The Zolas are experiencing recent success with their single ‘Knot In My Heart’, however, I suspect failed forays of love to be a major point of inspiration. The track appears bubbly, bouncy, even smitten on the surface but the lyrics lead us to realize these poor saps are just like the rest of us 20-somethings– suffering from the anxieties of love and romance. You know what helps? Artfully crafted pop music to reinforce our feelings and remind us we aren’t alone!
If you dig the track and want to hear more, The Zolas release their sophomore album, Ancient Mars, on October 2nd. If you happen to be Canadian or want to be Canadian, The Zolas are currently on a cross-continent tour stretching from Nova Scotia to BC.
