Last year, I was introduced to the wonderfully talented, multi-dimensional Brooklyn-based group Zula in premiering their then single, “Getting Warm,” and featuring another here, “Basketball.” Now, the band is gearing up to release a new EP, 6 Passes, via Forged Artifacts.
The short player is led by “Anything For You,” a rippling, layered, spacious track to lose yourself in that builds on what made me fall for Zula hard in the first place.
As the band’s Henry Terepka adds:
“‘Anything For You’ combines a bunch of elements that we really love as a band: a breakbeat shuffle, a reflective headspace, and an intensified feeling of desperation or running in place. The song’s syncopated rhythm developed out of a jam with bassist Noga Shefi in Fall 2014. The lyrics were inspired by white-male domination as embodied, experienced, and witnessed in private homes, on college campuses, and in seats of power.”
