Last year the singer released her forth studio record in Taiga, which took its title from the Russian name for the boreal forest. The 25-year-old Nika Roza Danilova explained: “It represents a feral, untapped world that could happily exist without us. There are taiga forests in Northern Wisconsin where I was raised, and also in Russia where my ancestors are from, so it also feels very native.”
Now the record has its own stank, too, as Danilova has partnered with Blackbird scent company for a new line of fragrance and incense. Announcing the product via Facebook (we assume this isn’t a joke), the scent is “inspired by taiga” and “smells like firewood, ash, dry moss + mineral.”
Zola Jesus will be selling the goods on her winter tour, which hits pretty much everywhere but Boston. The closest date is a January 24 show at Fete in Providence; scan the full list of dates below, and check out our photo gallery of Zola Jesus’s recent Converse Rubber Tracks performance at the Sinclair in Cambridge.
