“Lost” is the lead single from Zola Jesus’ forthcoming new album “Arkhon”. It features Zola’s unique vocals and tribal cathartic delivery alongside heavy bass synths and percussion. It signals a new era for the ethereal and powerful singer-songwriter who sounds like she’s moving away from outwardly electronic sounds to something more acoustically percussive alongside her synths and voice. I really like the fact that “Lost” doesn’t chase a defined hook – it is a mood clinging onto melodies instead and it suits the grey universe that Zola Jesus’ music often resides in.
Accompanying the single is a beautifully shot music video. Shot by Mu Tunç Zola wanders through snowy mountains and creepy yet beautiful caves in Argos, Cappadocia. It looks stunning and whilst there is a lot of candlelit cave moments, the story and mood shine.
“Lost” is taken from “Arkhon” which is releasing on the 20th of May. It is available for pre-order now. Enjoy the music video below and I personally enjoy Zola’s Twitter too for keeping up to date with her world.
