ZOLA JESUS

~ sea talk ~

From Valusia EP on Sacred Bones

From Stridulum II LP on Souterrain Transmissions

DIRECTOR STATEMENT 

 

In Sea Talk, themes of sleepwalking, telekinesis, paranormal activity, and supernatural forces are explored via plasma balls, Van der Graaf generators, and harsh VHS degradation techniques.

SELECT PRESS

"For one of Zola Jesus' loneliest songs is a repertoire full of them, she cast herself in two of the most isolating situations imaginable:

sole person in a giant house, and stuck inside the television. Actually both of these situations are mostly just terrifying, but director Jacqueline Castel put some tragic beauty among the fright. AND THAT IS THE CRUX OF GOTH."
