Zola Jesus Shares Sinister Video for “Exhumed”

Zola Jesus‘s video for “Exhumed” is the stuff of nightmares. It’s like equal parts of the Blair Witch and the video from The Ring. Dark, mysterious, downright creepy. Zola Jesus worked with director Jacqueline Castel on the new clip. The song appears on Zola Jesus’s upcoming album, Okovi, which arrives September 8th through Sacred Bones.

Statement from “Exhumed” video director Jacqueline Castel:

“Exhumed” was personally conceived of and created whilst processing death – of family members and of relationships – and much like Okovi‘s core themes, it is a reflection on loss, heritage, and the often painful personal growth we must harness in the face of life’s constant evolution. Shot intimately in one day, in the exhausting heat within the woods surrounding Nika’s Wisconsin home, we sought to capture personal apocalypse, utilizing experimental shooting techniques to further our emotional goals. Practically and metaphorically, we fought to find the light in the darkest of forests.
