chin up

07.28.10

being the big zola jesus fan that i am, i’m a little surprised it took me until now to discover this new project that nika roza danilova is attached to (exactly how many bands is she in right now?!) with freddy ruppert and xiu xiu‘s jamie stewart. calling themselves former ghosts, they make dark, synth-tinged music that’s not too far removed from (or less alluring than) the recent cold cave output. naturally, nika’s numbers are the standouts.

they already have one album under their belts together, last year’s fleurs, with another called new love due out on october 4 on upset the rhythm. enjoy a taste of it via the black, borderline-balearic beauty of nika spotlight “chin up.”

and in case you missed it last week, here’s a stunner of a new zola track soon to be featured on the extended edition of their still amazing stridulum EP. sounds like a sister song to joy division’s “atmosphere.”

nor do we want you to, nika+rory. this new track pushes their sound even closer to their recent zola jesus output. or maybe it’s the other way around. either way, the track is hot.

check it out.
