    With a stunning stellar cover, Zaptra's new release "Pulular" instantly pops with vibrant and unique soundscapes and inspiring lyrics. Zaptra continues to fuze the worlds of Electronic, Rock, Drum and Bass, Ambient, and Indie music to create an experience where layers of sound envelope you into an upbeat, positive, and invigorating dreamworld. You feel as though you are melting away and floating on a cloud. The lyrics also help complete this spark by touching on notions of accomplishing your dreams, "It's not too late," Zaptra sings. "You've got to be what you want to be, It's all you have, So don't look back." Make the most of each moment and enjoy it.

    The highly anticipated third release from Zaptra is adorned with artwork designed by the wonderful Darryl Blood. Darryl has been the designer for all Zaptra releases and continues to represent the visuals for the Zaptra sound. In this latest release, Darryl has outdone himself with a dazzling oceanic inspired cover. Born and raised in southern California, Zaptra chose to incorporate elements of a marine life environment in the artwork and his music to reflect the resiliency of life. Stars and nebulas glow amidst a figure that seems supernatural. Comes in a Matte UV Coating Jacket, full color.

    ‘Pulular’ reflects on reconnecting with the internal youth within our adult lives and the purpose to make a dent in the universe, a mark in life. Derived from the Spanish word, pulular, translates to be prolific, to produce off spring (of animals). The English synonym, pullulate, is to sprout, bud, or germinate (of plants). And finally, pullus in it’s Latin root, means young animal. The visual themes in ‘Pulular’ revolve around species formed through the facts of science, along with the influential stories and historical marks left behind from our human race as we progress into time. "Without the passion to create and the motivation to live, there could not be life on this planet. Nature is a powerful notion. Synchronicity and patterns bring this beautiful world into fruition," said Art Paz of Zaptra.

Track Name: All the Plans I Have
You've got to be, what you're going to be
Its all you have, so don't look back
If you want it then just go ahead and reach above the stars
If you need it then just why do you want to hold it on back?

From your life and from yourself
Feel what you, want to feel
Don't be afraid to say
Just take a breath and go find yourself

You want to be, what I'm going to be
That's what you'll say
So hear what I've got to give today

If you want it then just go ahead and reach above the stars
Take the time to see this place is meant to be all that you are
Come and believe yourself and honor that you want to

Take away the pain and wash it out
You'll find a way to make it
Take the pain and throw it out
No time to waste right now
Take the time and be honest with yourself
You have what it takes in you
Make the time open your mind to see
See life with eyes wide open
Take the pain and let it go to waste

You want to find the secret
You want to find the secret
You want to find the secret
You want to find the secret
Track Name: Expanding Everyday
You wake up one morning wanting to leave your place
You want to be where your dreams tell you to go
You want it all just to know that you are strong
You took charge, took charge when it was wrong

Now you see these directions unlock the door
Now you see these reflections are you rewards

You just have to want
You just have to want
You just have to want
You just have to want

Embrace your ideas at every given moment
If you don't think then you must be in the moment

You gotta to give
Gotta to give
Gotta give it all
You gotta to give
Gotta to give
Gotta give it all

It's not to late
It's not to late, to late
It's not to late
it's not to late, to late
