The future of darkwave looks bright, fellow night creatures — Zola Jesus will release a new album in 2014! In October, Nika Roza Danilova, better known as goth electronic performer Zola Jesus, will release Taiga, her follow-up to 2011’s excellent Conatus (and 2013’s set of orchestral reworkings of her songs, Versions).
Information about the album is pretty limited for the time being, but Danilova has released a teaser clip for the album, directed by Kyle Hurley. And though it’s brief, it features some heavier, beat-driven sounds which may very well indicate the direction of the album, and perhaps a shift toward more danceable sounds. We would be so down with that, just for the record. Check out the teaser vid below.
