Gon Von Zola shares the video for his debut solo single 'Blue Is...' ahead of a date at Hackney's Paper Dress tomorrow night (April 24).
Penned in collaboration with Sue Denim of 'Mighty Boosh' favourites Robots In Disguise, the track is lively and sun-kissed but there are darker undertones at work beneath the surface
Gon von Zola is based in North London but his heritage is an intriguing mix of Swedish, Indian, Estonian and German genes, arriving in London from his native Leipzig a few years back with a fiver in his pocket and a burning desire to throw himself into the capital's gig scene.
Formerly the mastermind behind band The Budda Cakes, he's played everything on 'Blue Is.,..' himself aside form the backing vocals, which come courtesy of Mia Unklar.
'Blue Is, ' is out on Before Sunrise Records on May 25.
Tuesday April 24 – Paper Dress, Hackney
Wednesday June 13 – Mark Beaumont presents… Camden Monarch
