Zulu Winter: Bitter Moon
London five piece Zulu Winter recently released their album ‘Language’ via Toronto label Arts & Crafts. The group had originally signed to to Play It Again Sam in the UK, a part of PIAS Entertainment Group.
Here are some from the band about today’s featured track ‘Bitter Moon’:
“This is one of the oldest songs on the album and – as songs that lie around often do – has undergone quite a bit of fiddling and re-structuring. However, we stuck with it because the beat and the melody together present a different side to the band that we all agreed was good to have on the record. It’s about being a young man, and how confusing, disorientating and glamorous all of the urges that come with that are, whether they be sexual, violent, compulsive, loving or whatever. The title, Bitter Moon, comes from a Polanski film that explores those desires, although his take is predictably more focused on sex than anything else…”
