Looking to listen to something a little outside the realm of regular rock or pop music? Pop princess Zola Jesus is no Miley Cyrus. The industrial and electronic-inspired musician has just made her new album Conatus available for stream on The Guardian’s website. The record is a follow up to last year’s smash hit, Stridulum II which garnered the musician a huge fan base.
Conatus revisits the sounds of Stridulum II with powerful vocals and beautiful instrumentals. But the record is far more theatrical. Opening, minute-long track “Swords,” thrusts listeners into a high-energy, instrument-driven wonderland that may remind many of Bjork. Second track “Avalanche” signals its arrival with pounding drums that match Zola Jesus’ soulful crooning. The record is beautifully crafted and shows that there is more than one way to write a pop song.
Check out the album here, courtesy of The Guardian, and give it a try when it hits record stores on Sept. 26.
