Nika Danilova, aka Zola Jesus, is releasing her new album, Taiga, in October. It’s the follow up to her 2011 release, Conatus.
The irony behind the title of the first song from the album, Dangerous Days, is that she sounds more euphoric here. Where the vocals of her previous efforts had been recessed to the background, here they have been brought to the front, and allowed to truly soar against the beat and synth. Sounds like her work with M83 has rubbed off a bit on her.
Great new music. Love it.
