We can count on one hand all the strictly instrumental electronic acts in town, and Pala Zolo is one of them.

The synth wizard behind the group, Eric Davis, occasionally moonlights in bands like Hembree. But his solo work has been turning heads with beautiful synth-filled landscapes and over-the-top visually stunning music videos.

He just released “Up North,” which is some pretty grand Friday afternoon music if you ask us. You can listen below before catching him at Spring Into Summer Fest this weekend at the Replay.
