Labelled one of the "hardest working bands" in the sprawling NYC scene, Brooklyn-based psych-pop rockers Zula continue to grow and wow both live and on tape.
Earlier this year, while gigging out in their home borough back with fellow bands to watch in Pinegrove and Half Waif, Zula teased further activity with the excellent one-off single, "Not The Same." Now, the quartet featuring cousins and lead songwriters Henry and Nate Terepka, drummer Pablo Eluchans and bassist Noga Shefi are prepping for the release of their second LP, Grasshopper.
Zula's sophomore full-length effort is led by "Getting Warm". The gorgeously layered track builds atop tight funk grooves as inventive, warm psych textures repeat and swell entrancingly. As followers of the band know by now, "Getting Warm" rewards repeat listens and marks another bold, natural step forward.
"The song imagines moving forward, knowing everything can't possibly be okay - floating in a state of togetherness and love - when your surrounding environment is on the verge of collapse," Zula says.
