Zola Jesus Unveils Video For “Siphon” Ahead of European Tour

Following high praise for her deeply personal and brave new album Okovi, which was released via Sacred Bones last month, Zola Jesus prepares for an extensive European tour with a new video.

Directed by Zia Anger, this bold visual accompanies album track “Siphon” – a strikingly bare and honest reaction to the attempted suicide of someone close. “This song is incredibly literal and personal,” Zola Jesus told NPR earlier in the year. “It’s hard to talk about or try to explain beyond what’s written in the lyrics.”

Speaking on the video, Zia Anger (who also directed Jenny Hval’s controversial video for “Conceptual Romance” last year) commented: “It was a very sobering experience to be trusted with such visceral material.”
