The Zolas Bring the Heavy on Double Threat Single

0



 

Several years out from the release of 2016’s radio-smashing, Juno-nominated breakthrough, Swooner, The Zolas are ready to start a new cycle and a new direction. Forthcoming new album, Come Back to Life, touches on everything from waking up to Canada’s appalling treatment of its First Nations to global wealth disparity to artists being priced out of the cities they’ve helped make great.

“Wreck Beach/Totem Park,” the newest single to be shared from the LP, is about the process of opening your eyes to realize in horror that your funniest, sweetest moments of nostalgia are – in many ways – the spoils of colonization. The Zolas’ vocalist/guitarist, Zachary Gray, lived his whole life beside the Musqueam reserve, never being taught and never thinking to ask why they live quietly in a small corner of a land that used to be all theirs.
