If Zola Jesus’s music wasn’t breathtaking enough for you the first time round, Versions is set to change that. With the help of composer JG Thirlwell, Nika Roza Danilova has stripped back her previous body of work to bring a chill-inducing and stringed affair. The project came about when Danilova wanted to change up her usual electronic set for a show in The Guggenheim. So she called on Thirlwell, who has worked with Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave and Soft Cell’s Marc Almond, to throw in some cinematic symphony. Danilova’s voice can capture the world’s emotions in one note and, under the helm of the dark lord of the strings, big songs such as Night (from 2010’s Stridulum II) and Hikikomori (from 2011’s Conatus) are now raw and intensified. zolajesus.com
