WATCH: Zola Jesus – ‘Siphon’

Following acclaim from the likes of The Observer and The Sunday Times for her deeply personal and brave latest album Okovi, Wisconsin-based artist Zola Jesus returns to our eyes and ears with a captivating new video.

A touching and honest reaction to the attempted suicide of someone close, ‘Siphon’ is propelled by tribal beats and powerful vocals. Oozing eerie undertones and a sweeping, haunting splendour, it’s a truly spellbinding creation. Directed by Zia Anger (who’s also directed Jenny Hval’s ‘Conceptual Romance), the video is a striking visual accompaniment to this thought-provoking offering. Of the track, Zola Jesus explains:

This song is incredibly literal and personal… It’s hard to talk about or try to explain beyond what’s written in the lyrics.”
