Zola Jesus Feels the ‘Hunger’ in Minimal New Video

Zola Jesus

Just a couple of days after facing #WinterStormJuno in BrooklynNika Roza Danilova — known more commonly as Zola Jesus — has released an artful new video for “Hunger.” The Allie Avital Tsypin-directed clip, which is taken from Danilova’s Taiga album, has the Rapunzel-haired singer contorting her nymph-like body into various shapes in a bare, warehousey space. In a statement about the video, Tsypin — who also goes by the moniker BANGS — said in a press release: “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.” Watch “Hunger” above.
