As the year winds down, it seems like the music scene slows down a bit and magazines and radio stations focus on end of the year lists and countdowns, rehashing the best and worst of the last year. So when I heard the new song from Phosphorescent this week, it was like a breath of fresh air. Phosphorescent is the project of Brooklyn songwriter Matthew Houck, who wrote the forthcoming album in Mexico. He says, “It sounds really cheesy, but I went down there with a guitar and got a little hut on the beach in Tulum, on the Yucatan Peninsula.” That sounds beautiful to me, and I love imagining that scenario while listening to the first single “Song For Zula.” The background strings blend perfectly with his gentle rasp and a faint echo gives it a dreamy quality that is so soothing to the ears. Listen below and let me know if you love it too!
More indie music we love!
