For her 5th studio album, Nika relocated to Vashon Island in the Puget Sound to fully immerse herself in the environment from which the music was inspired. The taiga is the world’s largest terrestrial biome; a wild boreal forest covering large portions of Russia, referred to as the Northwoods where it connects in North America, including all of Canada and large portions of Eurasia. Nika grew up on several acres of land in the northwoods of Wisconsin.  She has always felt its pull. Her Russian ancestors extend the taiga’s bloodline throughout several generations. To Nika, the taiga represents boundlessness; no law, just survival - at once innocent and raw, embodying naivety from its purity, yet at its core unforgiving and savage.

After leaving Vashon, Nika tracked and mixed the album in Los Angeles with co-producer Dean Hurley (David Lynch, Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse). At once challenging and accessible, TAIGA is a transition for Zola Jesus. Described by the artist herself: “The music on the record is massive, with big brass and beats, crystal clear vocals.”
