Nika Roza Danilova, aka Zola Jesus, is an artist in a constant state of metamorphosis. Each of her albums has showcased a different side to her creativity, and her fifth album Okovi is no exception.

For the latest installment of the 405 Exchange Podcast, Ken Grand-Pierre caught up with Zola Jesus to discuss the aforementioned album, how the writing process must always change, why the word "evolve" is important, and the importance of your music and art being one. Check out their conversation below, along with the video for 'Exhumed'.

“Musically it's really important that no matter what, I'm pushing myself into a new direction.”
