The Zolas :: "Invisible"
The Zolas, purveyors of one of the best songs of 2012, "Knot In My Heart", return with one-off "Invisible". It's a bit of power-pop bombast slamming into the chorus with dark bubble gum rhymes like, "When the nighttime crashes it/ look around beside you, babe, we're your friends/When you need some oxygen, jump into the fire with us." The fatalism is strictly lyrical as the guitars race downward against the drums in an escalating series of dares. Like their previous work, no band in independent rock writes hooks with as much punch and as few apologies as the Zolas. The final movement lifts off the ground shooting the metaphors about fire off somewhere in the sky.
