    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.
