Classically trained Russian American vocalist, Nika Roza Danilova, decided somewhere in her teens to trade opera for electronic music as a path to follow. What resulted, is a dense, at times dark, brooding, yet soaring, powerfully voiced ambient gothic industrial dirge. If music is hard to describe in words, then I'll probably like it, but as a sportsman let's say it sounds like a summoning ritual, beckoning an ancient space leviathan from behind the pillars of creation to cleanse the earth with it's benevolent gamma ray. Essential tracks: Hikikomori, Sea Talk, In Your Nature, & Night.

I love M83 and I really, really love M83 and Zola Jesus together.
