Is Zola Jesus the next revelation in electro land like NME says?Posted on 19/11/12
Remember Grimes, Austra or Florence + The Machine? There's another act that has come up in the mainstream sector that found its ingredients in the electropop and dark wave scene: Zola Jesus. We wouldn't exactly call it original (though it's all well done) as it sounds like a blend of all the before mentioned acts. Not that it stops some magazines like NME going completely nuts over it tagging it as industrial or gothic. We're pretty sure that NME tags Erasure as being pretty dark electro.
More recently Zola Jesus (aka Russian American artist Nika Roza Danilova) covered Rihanna's "Diamonds" after one of her Twitter followers messaged her to suggest the idea. You can check it out after the jump together with a video.
Zola Jesus so far has released 3 EPs and 3 full-length albums.
