WATCH: Zola Jesus Releases Video For “Hunger”
The single for the Taiga track will be available on February 10.
Last fall, Zola Jesus released her solid fifth LP, Taiga. On that album was the raw track “Hunger,” which received a brand-new mix by Danilova’s bandmate Alex DeGroot and Mute founder Daniel Miller, along with a music video that was released today.
The horn- and synth-laden track effortlessly fills the ample space within the sparse music video, directed by BANGS (Allie Avital Tsypin), which features Danilova striking poses and creating stage motions within a dark, empty warehouse. Tsypin offered more insight into the video, “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. 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.”

Zola Jesus’s “Hunger” single and B-side will be available February 10 via Mute. Taiga is out now.
