“New York psych-pop explorers Zula aren’t easy to pin down, but while their sound shifts track to track, there is a beautiful coherence to an album like This Hopeful.”
“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”
“Tense yet tempered psych pop”
mirage rock / cactus bop / turkey hop

Concrete Desire is the new recording project from longtime Ottawa (via Sault Ste. Marie) recording and touring musician Rory Lewis. “Not Great” available now!
