“Her poppiest song and most air-punching chorus to date” The Guardian Guide Daily

Unsurprisingly fantastic” Stereogum

Zola Jesus unveils a transcendent remix of Dangerous Days from Northampton based musician (and Mute label-mate) James Chapman aka Maps. The original track received critical acclaim, being lauded as “an elegant synth-pop banger” by Spin, receiving Best New Track on Pitchfork, and cracking the Top 20 in Billboard’s Twitter Emerging Artists Chart.

Maps takes this modern masterpiece to new heights with his emotive interpretation, saying, “Dangerous Days was a real pleasure to remix. It’s a really uplifting track, and Nika’s vocals are so powerful. When I worked on the song I wanted to really push the euphoric elements as much as I could, while still keeping the vibe of the original.”  Zola Jesus’s Taigais due for release 6 October 2014 on Mute.

Zola Jesus embarks on a worldwide tour throughout October and November. After arriving in the UK on 29 October for a show in Bristol, she travels throughout the UK and Europe, finishing with a London date at KOKO on 18 November. Full details below, watch the tour trailer here:

Nika is the 25-year-old behind Zola Jesus’ creative incarnations as sole singer and songwriter.  Influenced by her time in Iceland, Vermont, and British Columbia, Taigawaswritten on Vashon Island, WA and conjures all these places while creating a sonic space of its own that each listener can travel to, explore, hide in, and celebrate. Nika tracked and mixed the album in Los Angeles with co-producer Dean Hurley (David Lynch, Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse).

At once challenging and accessible, Taiga is a transition for Zola Jesus. Undeniably branded with what Nika terms a “piercing ambition,” the album is best described by the artist herself: “The music on the record is massive, with big brass and beats, crystal clear vocals…It’s the most accessible music I’ve ever made, but also the most earnest and passionate. I gave everything for this record, more than ever before.”
