A most interesting interview with: The Zolas

The Zolas are going to take your iPod by storm. Or perhaps they already have?

The Vancouver-based indie-pop duo Zachary Gray and Tom Dobrzanski released their debut album Tic Toc Tic recently and it’s a killer. Filled with infectious pop hooks, refreshing rock melodies and a whole lotta style, Tic Toc Tic puts The Zolas right up there with some of Vancouver’s top talent such as Said The Whale, Hey Ocean! and Hannah Georgas, amongst others.

I had the chance to talk to The Zolas on Friday, December 18 before their show at the Vogue Theatre with Hey Ocean! and Current Swell. Our conversation included Tom “showing” listeners his super cool piano scarf, a debate over whether Zach’s den was actually a living room, and Tom getting in trouble for not putting his girlfriend on the guest list.

Listen to the interview below.

And here are a few great Zolas songs: “You’re Too Cool,” “The Great Collapse” and “Marlaina Kamikaze.”
