Nika Rosa Danilov, more commonly known as Zola Jesus, will be playing a couple of extra dates while in Australia for Vivid Live 2012.
The tour kicks off May 31 at Vivid Live 2012 – fitting considering the operatic vocal quality of Zola Jesus. Nika Rosa and band will then play shows at the Alhambra Lounge in Brisbane and The Toff in Melbourne.
For those unfamiliar with Zola Jesus’s cinematic synth pop sound, comparisons can be made to fellow Vivid act Florence + The Machine. However, Zola Jesus’s brand of anthemic balladry posses a darker edge than her Florence counterpart.
