Zola Jesus – Dangerous Days
Zola Jesus definitely has one of the more distinct, recognizable voices in the industry. And her dark, ethereal sound is generally tough to mistake unless perhaps you’re rotating on and off between she and an act like Bat For Lashes. Zola, aka Nika Roza Danilova, has got an upcoming 5th LP set for an October release and we’ve just got our hands on the lovely first single “Dangerous Days”. I haven’t delved too much into the actual content of it yet, but from a strictly melodic standpoint it’s quite the uplifting track. And while her songs aren’t generally known for their warm demeanor, Zola Jesus shows off her versatility, range, and willingness to expand her sound with this one. So if this wonderful new track is any indicator, the upcoming record is definitely one to get your hopes up for.
