LISTEN: Phosphorescent Releases “Song For Zula” And Tour Dates

 

Phosphorescent's Matthew Houck makes his way back into our headphones with a hauntingly, heartbreaking single, "Song For Zula." It is the start of a big year for Phosphorescent, with scheduled SXSW performances, a worldwide spring tour, and their new album, Muchacho, due out on March 19 via Dead Oceans.

 

If the single represents everything we have to look forward to, then we can't wait to hear more.

 

With "Song for Zula," Houck's soft, slightly rugged drawl takes center stage as he goes through the perception of love and the reality of its pain. It is a soothing, melodic and mysterious tune that expresses the uncertainties of diving in too deep. The light sounds of strings and the dull drums carry his voice in this heartbreaking journey of insecurity. What really makes this song a beautiful track though, is his heartfelt honesty, as if he were opening up himself in a song for everyone.
