It's been a long time coming, but the wait is almost over. Zula's forthcoming LP, Grasshopper, is due out August 26. Led by cousins Henry and Nate Terepka, Zula plays hypnotic pop music with a dose of noise and psychedelia. Along with Pablo Eluchans (drums) and Noga Shefi (bass), they craft heavily rhythmic songs with reflective, suspended moods.
Grasshopper navigates many different territories - the band foregrounds texture, but has a singer-songwriter orientation; the album pulls from dance music, post-punk and art-rock but resists stereotypes. In a live setting, the four-piece opens up their tracks, allowing them to breathe and take off on unexpected tangents.
They'll take their show on the road for a short tour with our buds from Leapling next month. Check out some dates and stream Grasshopper's first single, "Getting Warm," below.
