“Dangerous Days” by Zola Jesus. Directed by contemporary visionary artist Tim Saccenti, the video is an awe-inspiring backdrop to this anthemic new song from Zola Jesus. Saccenti explains, “The song is a pure emotional plea, a future primitive call to arms. To create a moment of light in these dark times was our hope. Eschewing a heavy narrative we let the images of the Earth, filmed in wide screen and mixed with a tense unnatural presence, wash over the viewer while Nika communicates her powerful message.” Nika (of Zola Jesus) describes the video making process, “Working with Tim was effortless. His creative ambition to turn the abstract into a tangible feel is a rare treasure.”
“Dangerous Days” comes from the album TAIGA, due for release October 7th, 2014 on Mute.
