Canadian Prog Poppers THE ZOLAS Release a Swooner

The Canadians latest single “Swooner” opens with a brawny riff, but is soon transported skillfully into late 1980s pop bliss. For fans of the Mystery Jets or Yukon Blonde.

The BLUR-like buzz digs deep into the sinews as the slightly disdainful voice sneers and struts its stuff.

This is a sexy boogie-down piece. Fibrous, felicitous and fancy …
