Stridulum II by Zola Jesus was one of our favourite records of last year – a slice of cinematic, gothic-inspired pop with tunes as big as the arrangements. You can listen to the follow-up, Conatus, using the SoundCloud player below, and read Nika's track-by-track guide to the albu. words. There was a period in making this album where I thought it would be all instrumental, and I was obsessively churning out songs such as this one. It was so exciting to explore these soundscapes that felt like a score to all the bizarre dreams I was having.

Her voice was the focus of every song on the album, even when it was so ground into the mix. Such a powerful, dramatic instrument coming from such a fragile, small, young woman (she is only twenty one years old). It was surprising she sounded so assured and strong, given her newness on the lo-fi scene. Less than a year later comes this little nuggest of goodness, her Stridulum EP. And while her debut was something of a small masterpiece, this EP shows a marked improvement.
