Local prog-pop artists The Zolas finish out their spring tour at the Vogue Thursday, April 6th.
Anyone who caught on to the slow-‐burn success of 2012’s desolately hook-‐laden Ancient Mars could sense that something in The Zolas was threatening to bubble over, and after a year of recording, their upcoming record shows an alternative pop collaboration at the top of their creative game. Original members Tom Dobrzanski and Zach Gray have been joined by another longtime duo Cody Hiles and DJ Abell and this is the first album they’ve completely self-‐produced at Dobrzanski’s Monarch Studios in Vancouver.
The currently untitled, upcoming LP 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.
Louise Burns, formerly of the pop group Lillex, is the opener.
