Zula is the experimental pop project of brothers/duo Nate and Henry Terepka. Their music puts it’s listener in an almost hypnotic dream state through the use of synthesizers, soothing vocal harmonies, roaring guitars, and off beat drum patterns. There is no single term or sub-genre to describe this group, but things that come to mind include pop, indie / alternative rock, and electronic.


Pointillistic structures with a mainspring of minimalism.

— Jon Pareles, The New York Times

For lack of a better word, this is pop, sincere, offbeat, and playfully and unassumingly experimental: you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone else that sounds like them, or as musically and effectively fulfilling.

— Tiny Mix Tapes

Pop sensibilities push through well-crafted avant-rock.
