Track Of The Day: Zola Jesus – Dangerous Days

zola jesus This year indie favourite Zola Jesus made a bold statement to the media in the lead up to her forthcoming album Taiga: “I want to be number one on Billboard”.

While the first single Dangerous Days from her new album is euphoric, expansive and catchy as hell, it is still at its core very much experimental and, therefore, A) bound to be a challenge to mainstream listeners and B) far from hitting pole position on the Billboard charts any time soon. The album was also co-produced by Dean Hurley (David Lynch), just to put things into perspective…

Real name Nika Roza Danilova, Zola Jesus has a knack for the quirkier and less accessible side of pop and, despite her grand ambitions, she really ought to go with what she does best – atmospheric, spacey, leftfield pop melodies topped with gorgeous, spine-tingling vocals. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
