Mama Zu - "Safe Place to Stay"

Last time we heard from Mama Zu, they released "Lip," was sounded like an extension of Jessi Zazu and Linwood Regenburg's time in Those Darlins. (The music from Mama Zu was recorded between Those Darlins' break up in 2016 and Zazu's death in 2017 from cervical cancer.) The latest single from the project, "Safe Place to Stay," moves in a completely different direction. This latest song has a much more pop centered feel to it than country. It's more of a modern take on alt-pop meets 70's AM radio. There's definitely an unexpected synth-heavy thing going on in "Safe Place to Stay," particularly at the beginning. It's a surprising new sound from one of our favorite artists who was taken from this world far too early.

You can watch the video for "Safe Place to Stay" below. Quilt Floor is due out February 23 on Thirty Tigers, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Mama Zu, check out the project on Facebook and Instagram.
