Okovi is profound; it embodies meditations on loss and reconciliation.

Danilova, or Zola Jesus, has been churning out incredible albums over the past ten years.
“We’re all shackled to something—to life, to death, to bodies, to minds, to illness, to people, to birthright, to duty.” –Zola Jesus
This album is electronics-driven, and it was written in pure catharsis with heavy sonic textures, dark and exploratory sounds, and vocals invoking uneasiness and pain.
Each of us is born with a unique debt, and we until we die to pay it back,” Zola Jesus says.
Without this cost, what gives us the right to live? And moreover, what gives us the right to die? Are we really free to choose?”
Zola Jesus –Okovi
Danilova uses her unique emotional circumstances to make a powerful experience of reflection on the state of being in today’s world.
The album is defined largely by meditative principles, which accompany a dissonance defined by orchestral undercurrents.
Although the darkness is certainly at the center, the subtle variations from dark to light suggest confusion, questioning, and ultimately, the necessity of hope.
The electronic journey continues throughout the entire album, and its powerful approach commands your attention and full enjoyment.
The best things come in thin square packages.
Sacred Bones represents some awesomely unique musicians!
