The Zolas Turn Tangerine in 'I Feel the Transition' Performance Video

By Alex HudsonPublished Dec 10, 2020Vancouver pop-rockers the Zolas have spent the second half of 2020 rolling out singles with their “Z Days” series, and the most recent of these has now got a live performance video.

The performance of “I Feel the Transition” was captured live at 604 Studios — the in-house studio for the band’s label, Light Organ Records. It finds the four-piece grooving their way through the Britpop-inspired song, which adds a disco-dazzled dance-rock pulse to what otherwise sounds like an Oasis anthem, à la Definitely Maybe.

Frontman Zach Gray, who wears some nifty green shades in the soundstage performance, explained in a statement:

The label made it really easy for the bands to be honest. They had everything set up at their soundstage — Andy Bishop from Sus Minds (Alex Little and the Suspicious Minds) masterminded the session. All we said ahead of time was “make it tangerine” before coming in to lay the song down. Usually this stuff sounds a little flat with no audience energy but we love this song and it felt good right away on playback.

The Zolas certainly got their wish when it comes to tangerine lighting. Check out the “I Feel the Transition” live video below. This is part of “Comedy Here Often? and Light Organ Records Present: A Record Store Day Show.”
