Fresh off of playing outside in the snow, Zola Jesus has shared the video for “Hunger,” a track off of her shoot-for-the-mainstream record Taiga. The video, which was directed by BANGS (aka Allie Avital Tsypin), sees Nika Roza Danilova standing in a series of statuesque poses while the camera sweeps around her. “The video for ‘Hunger’ is essentially a sculpture project … an exploration of a life form: both raw and refined. A negotiation between form and inner life, movement and stillness, desire and satiation,” BANGS explained in a press release. “Working with Nika is always an honest and satisfying collaboration … it was really fun to interpret the song and Nika’s aesthetic sensibilities through film.” The video features a new mix of the track, which will be featured on a new digital single along with a B-side called “Compass.” Watch the video below.
Taiga is out now via Mute. “Hunger” b/w “Compass” will be out 2/10.
