NPR has just debuted the new video for “Song for Zula,” from Phosphorescent’s outstanding new album, Muchacho. It’s a single-shot, slow tracking clip that centers on a woman trying to free herself from chains by smashing them with rocks. It’s simple but breathtaking. Watch the clip, directed by Djuna Wahlrab and Matthew Houck, below.
