Today we review the debut album, This Hopeful, from the Brooklyn band Zula. The 9-song collection, released by Inflated records on October 29th, provides a modern take on psychedelic pop. Fuzz-infused composition laced with electronic nuances create textures that develop a hazy, pleasant soundscape. It’s simultaneously accessible and experimental.
