Last.fm: Zola Jesus is the endeavor of a solitary girl named Nika Roza Danilova to simultaneously combat and invoke the approaching apocalypse using the only weapon/offering she has; her voice. After a decade of opera study and a musical awakening involving such varied inspiration as Billboard bubblegum, classical arias, no wave, avant industrial, she was able to thread her influences into a sound uniquely her own.

The music seems a bit like Fever Ray to me. And voice reminds me of Siouxsie Sioux, andI like the dark atmosphere which is really layered together with the distorted drums. It may sound a bit slick on record, but I hope it will be less so live.
