Zula - existential electro-pop at Delinquency on 09.28

Brooklyn band Zula takes indie electronic pop to new eerie directions with ‘Make Contact’, a single they recently released, which serves as a preview for a full length scheduled for the end of 2012. A loop of voices in the background, reminiscent of the ending one on The Beatles' "A Day In The Life," pulls the listener into a trance-like state as the beat falls into place, and other subdued textures and melodies slowly move in. Delving into underlying feelings and suggestions, and toying with unusual musical ideas, Zula updates the existential art rock of Radiohead's "Kid A" era for the DIY generation. See them live at Delinquency on September 28 with Tony Castles, Backwards, and Ancient Sky. - Christine Cauthen
