Press info: There is a way a voice can cut through the fascia of reality, cleaving through habit into the raw nerve of experience. Nika Roza Danilova, the singer, songwriter, and producer who since 2009 has released music as Zola Jesus, wields a voice that does that. When you hear it, it is like you are being summoned to a place that’s already wrapped inside you but obscured from conscious experience. This place has been buried because it tends to hold pain, but it’s also a gift, because once it’s opened, once you’re inside of it, it can show you the truth. Zola Jesus’s new album, Arkhon, finds new ways of loosing this submerged, stalled pain.

Pitchfork says: “Nika Roza Danilova’s sixth record is more collaborative, widening the scope
of her music and taking big leaps while retaining its primal, gothic spirit.”
Score: 7/10.

TUTV: Mystical voice. Opera-tic compositions. Her best work so far.

Singles/clips: Desire / The Fall / Into The Wild
