David Lynch has taken on Zola Jesus and the result is a song that crawls slowly to sensual, cinematic perfection. It’s gloriously moody for a rainy day weekend.
I’ve always thought of Zola, real name Nika Roza Danilova, as a dark princess, even with her platinum blond hair. So a collaboration with Lynch, whose work tends toward the dreamy and surreal, is a match made in…some alternate universe where nothing and everything makes sense.
The original version of the track appeared on her acclaimed 2011 album “Contaus” and the remix will be available as a 7-incle single and download via Sacred Bones records.
Don’t miss Zola at the Natural History Museum as part of First Fridays (presented by KCRW) on March 2 (with EMA opening).
