  1. 1. Z OLA J ESUS P RESS U PDATE 7 December 2010 You dont hear singers like this every day, or even every year...” – Pitchfork, 8.1 ‘Be not mistaken, this is a white-hot star in the making’ NME Maga z ine“Huge, heartwrenching songspowered forth on epic synthand crashing war drums.” – The Guardian, UK “one of the most terrifyingly immense things you’ll hear all year...‘Night’ is an operatic, Lynchian peek into sonic armageddon.” – NME Rada r “Danilova’s voice is powerful and fragile and is at the centre of every song on the EP. There is a constant dark undertone in every song which is occasionally lifted by the power of Danilova’s remarkable vocals.” – Virgin Media “The most startling thing about this record is that it hints at the even bigger and greater things Zola Jesus might be capable of. If there was ever a doubt Zola Jesus had talent under all the noise and electronics, then here is the raw proof, howling at you from the stereo.” – Drowned in Sound “Well rounded and perfectly paced, Stridulum II ’s dark sonic tapestry proves that the future for Zola Jesus is as bright as Nika will allow.” – T h e L i n e o f B e s t F i t Her vocal performances can feel so heartbreaking theyre like Sinead OConnors Nothing Compares 2U with BONUS TEARS. Can you imagine?’ - Artrocker

This album is the work of the startingly young, formeropera student Nika Danilova. Combining mastodonic dramatic projection and doomladen gothic drums, Nika creates the most gut-stirringly devastating murderballads you will hear all year.

(She’sa bit like Talia Al-Ghul, Batman’s love interest and daughter of his archrival.) Trainedin operatic singing, she’s a student of cavernous post-punk goth, music that thrives invery narrow harmonic environments. Her previous record, “The Spoils,” soundedbaleful, Germanic, smoky. It jumped to conclusions about its own power, as if yoursubmission were already a done deal. But in the months since then, she’s grown: her’80s Siouxsie Sioux yelp has taken on a slight ’60s-girl-group tenderness, and likewiseher songwriting. Some tracks from “Stridulum,” her new EP on Sacred Bones, comeacross like proper love songs. (“I Can’t Stand” offers solace to a friend who’s given upon love: “I can’t stand to see you this way,” she howls from her great height, “It’sgonna be alright.”) They’ve still got sulfurous echo and war drums in the background,but they’re comforting dreams, not nightmares.Pitchfork April Feature with interview:http://pitchfork.com/features/guest-lists/7786-zola-jesus/
