Zola Jesus "Nail" (video)
Published Aug 27, 2015Despite the cathartic boom of the song itself, the video for Zola Jesus' Taiga track "Nail" is plenty claustrophobic. If the idea of being trapped beneath a blackened blanket of latex doesn't completely turn you off, you can see the enveloping visuals down below.
Zola Jesus is caught between two worlds in the video: one above the layer of shiny material, and one below. The sentiment of the song remains the same no matter what, with the artist detailing a less than ideal personal situation, and demanding, quite tunefully, "set me free."
Strobing lights add more unease to the piece, whose soundtrack builds up to a powerful crescendo of beats, vocals and brass. You can see the results down below.
