Zola Jesus is about to release “Hunger,” a song from her 2014 album Taiga, as a single, and she’s got a new song that’ll serve as the B-side. “Compass” is a big, stormy track with a galumphing rhythm track and a general sense of overwhelming euphoria. If you threw a house beat under it, it could be total Euro-club material. Instead, though, it has this awesome tribal goth thing rumbling under it. The song sounds vast, and it’s a bit surprising that’s she’s willing to relegate something this huge and physical to B-side status. Listen to it below.
Taiga is out now on Mute, and the “Hunger” single is out 2/10.
