Zola Jesus Australian Tour 2012 Adds Extra Show & Supports

Due to overwhelming demand, the Zola Jesus Australian tour 2012 has added a  second show  at The Toff In Town on Saturday the 2nd of June.

Nika Rosa Danilova and her band will headline the show, which will also feature New York’s Light Asylum and Melbourne’s Forces. Opening the Sunday at The Toff will be the experimental art rock duo Fabulous Diamonds, while in Brisbane Palindromes and Blank Realm will set the mood at the Alhambra Lounge.

Equally commanding and fragile, L.A’s Zola Jesus transcends genre with her shape-shifting mix of cinematic synth pop and darkly anthemic balladry. Danilova’s visionary mix of the traditional and futuristic has seen her heralded among America’s most compelling young musicians, and at 22, she has performed alongside Fever Ray and The XX and collaborated with David Lynch and M83.

Artfully rendered and impeccably arranged, her recent long-player Conatus bookends a prolific run of releases – from her 2009 debut The Spoils, the Stridulum & Valusia EPs and their critically acclaimed, striking follow-up, Stridulum II. But it’s Danilova’s timeless voice that is her trump card. From the one-two punch of Conatus stand-out ‘Vessel’ to her soaring, resonant lead on recent single ‘Seekir’, the one-time opera singer’s powerful voice holds the intensity to bare her soul.

Rich with live drums and synthesisers, and set to a thundering electronic soundscape, the band’s revered live show is crowned by Danilova’s intense visual presence and electric vocal range. Drawing from their expansive catalogue of darkly arresting works, Zola Jesus’ first Australian tour will see the band perform at Sydney’s Vivid LIVE, as well as Melbourne and Brisbane headline dates.
