Zola Jesus returns this fall with the new album Taiga, and its first single, “Dangerous Days,” is a sweeping and beautiful piece of starry-eyed synthpop that couldn’t possibly be further from the gothic scrape-noise that Nika Roza Danilova started out making. In the new “Dangerous Days” video, we see Danilova singing by mountain lakes, on rocky beaches, and in deep woods. It’s beautifully shot, and it looks like a back-to-nature deal, at least until the moment that Danilova turns into a pillar of digital salt. Run The Jewels collaborator Tim Saccenti directs, and you can watch it below.
Taiga is out 10/7 on Mute.
