“Come Back to Life” is The Zolas’ second release since 2016’s Swooner, which hit #2 on Canadian Alt Chart and won Best Group at Canada’s Indies.
The new single is the latest in a series of Wong Kar-Wai-inspired lyric vignettes to accompany each Z Day release.
“We’ve been fans of Wong Kar-Wai for years, especially his punkier 90s movies like Fallen Angels, and had always chatted socially with the Amazing Factory guys about doing something together one day that paid homage to that vibe.”
We can’t let ourselves despair and sink back into apathy.
We can’t be drawn in by the cozy siren song of pop-culture oblivion.
Yes, it’s a heavy current we’re facing with climate change and decolonization.
Yes, our arms are burning.
Yes, we gotta keep swimming.
