Vivid descriptions with a social commentary
ZOLA is a 26-year-old singer-songwriter hailing from San Francisco, CA. Combining alternative pop and acoustic indie sounds with a soulful and breathy vocal delivery, ZOLA stands out as a unique genre-bending gem.
Weaving between English and French language, her lyrics combine vivid descriptions with a social commentary that reflects both her mixed heritage and her social conscience. ZOLA’s debut ‘Too Fast, Too Soon’ was released as a rough demo on Soundcloud and quickly went viral amassing over 600K streams.
Having fine-tuned her artistry at the University of Miami’s competitive Frost School of Music, ZOLA has since released a re-recorded version of ‘Too Fast, Too Soon’ as well as her debut EP ‘Everything I Know’, and sophomore EP “The Kid”.
“bb” is the latest single from “KOLA” – a forthcoming bedroom pop collaboration between singer/songwriter ZOLA & producer Koa Ho. Previous releases from the duo span a variety of genres from electropop to lofi bossa nova, and this latest song only expands on that sonic footprint.
As the most danceable tune yet in KOLA’s discography, “buchabounce” conveys both an effortless intimacy and an upbeat spark, blurring the line of music that has the capacity to make you dance and cry all at once.
