The Zolas are back on the road, this time with a fun new EP of remixes of their explosive song "Invisible". They'll be taking over the stage at O'Hanlons Wednesday April 9th.
Here's a blurb from the bands press release.
Italian producer His Majesty Andre has taken the song into a universe with synth pads germinating on all the spare space, and cut up the screaming backup vocals to emulate a time where Nitzer Ebb was considered the kings of the scene. Vancouver’s Pat Lok, who has received snowballing accolades lately from THUMP to BBC Radio One, turns in his version which references all that was well in the mid nineties acid house scene, while Edo from Brasstronaut delivers a Robyn-esque pop treatment under his new pseudonym, Resorts. Dreamy, Zolas frontman Zach Gray is excited about the release chirping in with "We'll never get to play (Nelson-based electronic festival) Shambala so this EP was made to salute our unmet techno dreams."

While we here in Saskatchewan tend to have some animosity towards Winnipeg, we tend to forget the wealth of musicians that we all love who have come from the prairie city. Neil Young, Randy Bachman, Fred Penner, John K. Samson. Each of them a national treasure, but also an innovator. Neil Young even tried his hand at electronic music. And now The Revival. A Winnipeg band that blends rock and electronic loops and samples in their very own Revival "Style".
