Song of the Day: "Night"

This, folks, is Zola Jesus. In case you hadn't heard, she's like the darker and better version of Florence and the Machine (vocally). She's also my new thing today because I've been unable to get the hook from this song "Night" out of my head for ages now. Nika Roza Danilova is the brainchild behind this project (pictured above) and as well as a lover of chocolate syrup poured down her face for promo shots, she is a trained opera singer and great songwriter.

This song is a sort of sombre pop with all the right amounts of texture and vocal focus. It resonates as both uplifting and unabashedly honest. Delicious. On the receiving end of great press from the likes of The Guardian, Dazed & Confused, Nylon Magazine and the NME, I'd definitely say Danilova's one to watch. If you like what you hear, check out her myspace for tour info, and RCRD LBL's artist profile for some streaming tracks.
