Gothy synthpop queen Zola Jesus continues to serve up spectacular new songs off of her next album Okovi in the form of a grandiose and atmospheric new tune named Siphon. She’s siphoned my very heart and soul away with this beautiful electronic pop song, which packs a whole lot of emotional weight in its aureate soundscape. Okovi is shaping up to be quite the diverse collection of music. Zola Jesus has rattled us and riveted us with thorny jabbing, tense droning Exhumed, as well as haunted us and bewitched us with viscous and opaque brooder Soak. Now, she takes us on a magnificent journey of catharsis with Siphon, which she co-produced with WIFE and Alex DeGroot. Around the release of Okovi, Zola Jesus will host two NYC events. The first will be a listening party that takes place on September 7th at the Sonos Store in SoHo. The second is an immersive listening and visual experience on September 13th in Chinatown called Okovi: Surround – a Sound Experience provided by Sonos. More information HERE and HERE. You can also catch her on tour in the U.S. this fall, though I don’t see a San Francisco stop, unfortunately. Ticket info can be found, here. Pre-order Okovi, here, and download Siphon instantly.
