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.

Welcome to our new site! We're thrilled to announce the release of Video Age's debut album, Living Alone, on July 29.
Video Age is Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli. On Living Alone, the New Orleans-based duo combines classic guitar-driven pop with synthetic sounds and a mechanical feel to create upbeat music with dark, gritty undertones. Much of the record was conceptualized last summer while Farbe was living alone in a sparse neighborhood by the train tracks.
"It was a beautiful shell of a house with no insulation, missing windowpanes, and rain always leaking in,” said the lead singer and guitarist. “Being alone for that long you start to see yourself clearly. But I never felt completely alone because the walls were so thin.”
