Zola Jesus has a new album called Taiga coming out next month, and from everything we’re hearing, it continues her move away from operatic noise-goth and toward a glossy sort of darkness. The album’s first single was the grand, triumphant “Dangerous Days.” She’s now followed it up with “Go (Blank Sea),” a glimmering, heavy piece of synthy melody that sounds closer to the Weeknd than I ever imagined Zola Jesus would come. But there’s a pulsing heart at the center of the song, and that’s been a part of Nika Roza Danilova’s sound since the beginning. Listen to the song below.
Taiga is out 10/7 on Mute.
