Video of the Moment #2459: Zola Jesus

By on Wednesday, 25th October 2017 at 6:00 pm

Zola Jesus released her latest album ‘Okovi’ in September on Sacred Bones Records. Prior to that release, we shared the promo for ‘Exhumed’ here in early August as a Video of the Moment. This week, Nikita Danilova has unveiled the visuals for ‘Siphon’, another track from her current LP. The theme to this video, directed by Zia Anger, is particularly heavy, described as “a strikingly bare and honest reaction to the attempted suicide of someone close” in the press release.

It seems quite apt at this time, given the turmoil we’re currently experiencing as more women who have been victims of sexual harassment have been speaking out. What makes this more cutting is Danilova’s pronouncement that songs on ‘Okovi’ come from a dark place. On ‘Siphon’, specifically, she explained to NPR, “this song is incredibly literal and personal. It’s hard to talk about or try to explain beyond what’s written in the lyrics.” Watch the intense new video to ‘Siphon’ below. She’ll be starting a UK tour on the 29th of October at Brighton Haunt; all her tour dates announced so far through the end of November including those on the Continent are listed here.
