Phosphorescent Premieres “Song For Zula” Video at NPR

Premiering this morning at NPR’s All Songs Considered, it is the new Djuna Wahlrab & Matthew Houck co-directed video for “Song For Zula.” Captured in one continuous, slow-motion shot, the video focuses in on a woman as she painfully tries to free herself. From what you ask? Watch above to find out.

“Song For Zula” is featured on Phosphorescent’s recently released Muchacho. You can find your copy at SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon or from Matthew himself at one of their forthcoming shows. If you are planning to attend a show, consider purchasing your tickets in advance; venues are selling out quickly! Oh and here’s a taste of what to expect in the live show – Phosphorescent live at SXSW for WFUV.

Night Beds at SXSW

“Winston Yellen’s falsetto filled a packed Red 7, delivering lush and note-perfect renditions of their songs… Yellen is also quite visually engaging as a frontman. Who knew that sensitive crooner was such a badass?”Pitchfork

“As such It can be hard to find a quiet place, let alone find a quiet band that can hold the attention of a big bar crowd. And yet, the soaring and emotional vocals of Night Beds’ Winston Yellon has that capacity to enrapture the room into silence.”Soundcheck WNYC

“Best band: Night Beds. First gig of the first night, first goose bumps of SXSW.”Time Out New York

“…wrapped their set with a whisper, then a wallop. Impressive.”The Key WXPN
