Zola Jesus is the stage name for the beautiful voice wielding Nika Roza Danilova. Mixing elements of classical with electronic, and experimental, her music creates landscapes of pure black, and eery sweet. She has an opera background, and her vocals are positively haunting. She really doesn’t sound like anything out there, and when mixed with the cinematic synths, the experience is truly original. In an interview with The L.A. Record, Nika commented on her own philosophy, since she has studied it, saying “I believe in not avoiding things you’re afraid of. Especially really dark things.” We agree. Watch Ms. Zola Jesus do her uber dark, dark, dark things in the way of musical stylings, and you too won’t want to avoid them. “Come to the dark side…” sorry we couldn’t resist.
