RIYL: Chelsea Wolfe, Bat For Lashes, Glasser

Label: Sacred Bones

Nika Roza Danilova has been crafting her cauldron of dark experimental pop music for the better part of a decade as Zola Jesus.  With exception to 2010’s Stridulum II on Souterrain Transmissions and 2014’s Taiga on Mute Records, Sacred Bones has been her home and muse as she’s evolved as an artist, and her 8th studio endeavor Okovi will see them reunited once again.

New tracks Exhumed and Soak reveal Zola Jesus traversing further into darkness, experimenting with strings and synths as the foundation for her unparalleled operatic vocal delivery.  Both haunting and soothing, Danilova is the chilling chanteuse coaxing you into her nightmares.  Once that otherworldly falsetto hits your eardrums, fighting her cold embrace will only prolong the inevitable.  Give in.  Feel her talons cut into your brittle viscera.

Sacred Bones has 500 copies of the LP on rust-colored vinyl, hand-numbered with a wax-seal and accompanied by a fanzine.  Trust me, you need this.  Listen to the newest tracks below and grab a copy of the wax after the ‘buy’ link.
