The Canadian band hope to make a big impression with their explosive alt-pop single.
Part pop anthem, part tribute to feminist punks Pussy Riot and the defiance in Ukraine, the latest single "Molotov Girls" by Vancouver band the Zolas is a bright, explosive little number that dares to attempt to approach the big, noisy ebullience of M83's "Midnight City", and comes awfully close. it's a track that deserves to click with mass audiences, and the new video for the track is the latest attempt to pull it off. Here's hoping it happens; it's a great track.
I think both Zach [Gray, singer/guitarist] and I realized quite quickly what we wanted to try and do with this video," says director Kevan Funk. "The two other videos that I've done for the band were both fairly nuanced and subdued, which is usually my preference. But this song was filled to the brim with a palpable sense of energy, which was impossible to ignore. The track feels like such a pop anthem, and we wanted to do a video that reflected that feeling and sense of scale. The concept was really born from that initial response, it was very immediate. We wanted to create something that felt big, fun and intoxicating. Something to put on youtube and shamelessly dance around the bedroom to."
The "Molotov Girls" single is out now.
