This is dense and atmospheric and immersive. There are many many (more or less) solo women artists making music in this genre — female vocals with intense electronic backing. Mostly they all just remind me of Lorde. But Okovi is a cut above. When I listen to a bunch of albums on random play, the Zola Jesus tracks stand out. And listening to the whole album at once gives me goosebumps — it evokes This Mortal Coil at times, which is quite a recommendation. I will soon be investigating the Zola Jesus back catalogue.
