East London four piece Zola Blood bring forth a brooding and darkened offering full of haunting elements in their latest single ‘Silver Soul’, the second release from their highly anticipated EP ‘Two Hearts’ “

‘Silver Soul’ is about saying a last goodbye to a time or a place when you’ve outgrown it and you know it’s time to change. In terms of the writing process, ‘Silver Soul’ was kicking around for a couple of years before we figured out how to make it work. We tried a bunch of different versions and ideas, and it was coming up with that drum loop – that you hear at the beginning – that helped us weave it all together. Usually the music comes first for us, which in turn inspires melody and lyrics. For ‘Silver Soul’ it kind of happened the other way around – we just had some basic chords, lyrics and melody but the rest was pretty fluid. So it was fun to take a different approach.

Speaking about the track, they explain, “Silver Soul is about saying a last goodbye to a time or a place when you’ve outgrown it and you know it’s time to change.

East London based quartet, Zola Blood is undoubtedly one of our favourite electro-ambient projects to come out of the UK. The recent tour with RÜFÜS DU SOL has left a visible mark on the band – they appear more direct and powerful in their delivery. ‘Silver Soul’ is taken from their latest EP via Akira Records.
