It ain't the Rolling Stone but seeing our video sorcerer @kevanfunk on the cover of the @georgiastraight for being a film fest darling tells us the world is learning what we've known for years.
Go buy 5 copies for your mother Kev. It's your world for the snatchin. -Z

TAKES A LITTLE EMPTINESS TO FEEL COMPLETE
Hey Toronto, our first show in December with @thestrumbellas sold too fast so they added a second. Let's play the first gig and then have a sleepover until the next one.
If you submitted a cover to our dumb contest, your lovingly handwritten envelopes are flying to you now.
DUMB CONTEST RESULTS:
Ok I woke up this morning (see photograph) and watched and listened to all your covers with a breakfast burrito and a clear mind. Yet again I'm floored by how smart and fun and open-hearted our fans are. Mille mercis for putting yourselves out there on video (something I'm personally too shy to do most of the time). Search #treasurepicks and you'll see what I mean. I couldn't narrow it down based on endearingness so I just went with my gut and chose 2 covers that I enjoyed aesthetically which I'll reveal at the bottom. So they'll split treasure picks that my mom recovered from the bowels of our family dryer BUT (LABOUR-INTENSIVE TWIST ENDING) only after I've sent 1 treasure pick to each person who submitted a video. So if you submitted a cover please send an email to email@example.com and tell me 3 things: your name/s, your mailing address, and what video you sent in. 1 pick per cover so if you're a pair I recommend cutting it in half like a yin-yang and boring a little hole in each half and wearing them as pendants forever.
The entirely subjective winners of this dumb contest are Christine Sako from San Diego who produced a lush and delay-soaked version of one of my favourite songs off our new album "This Changes Everything" https://youtu.be/lNQbcTbbkfE
Hanna Choi/Robynne Dwyer from my hometown of Vancouver for their delicate, heliospheric and gorgeously harmonized version of Cultured Man. https://soundcloud.com/user-209808248/cultured-man-cover
Honourable mention goes to all you beautiful people who let me into your worlds for a minute and whom I want to hug now. Hit me up on gmail w the details I listed above and I'll send you the next best thing: an 88-of-a-kind treasure pick. 💥💙
DUMB CONTEST: While replacing the clothesdryer belt my mom found $28.45 and 88 lost picks from my entire guitar upbringing. Whoever posts the best or most endearing cover of a Zolas song (tag me so I can see it & #treasurepicks) will receive the treasure picks and a little note from us. -Z
P.s don't ask about the 28.45. My parents already spent it on an above-average bottle of French wine.
