The Zolas are readying their sophomore album Ancient Mars, but before it hits record stores on Oct. 2, the band would like you to get a little taste with their latest tune “Knot in My Heart.”

“We wrote this song about the doomed relationships among us and our group of friends,” says singer Zachary Gray.

“When you’re low on the seesaw you look up at the other up there in the sun and you’re just glad to be playing; when you’re high on the seesaw you’re dazzled by all the other people in the playground and forget whose weight is lifting you. Then it switches continually ’til you both get sick and someone jumps off. This song is what it’s like to fall out of love.”
