blogTO magazine recently conducted an interview with Toronto experimental / post metal due NADJA.
Nadja, who last graced Toronto at 2012’s NXNE with an impressive performance, have just released a pre-order link (which promptly sold out, although you can stream the songs through Bandcamp) via their own label for their new LP Dagdrøm. The album features the drumming of Jesus Lizard’s Mac McNeilly in place of their usual drum machine.
The duo are calling Dagdrøm their rock album, which might sell the four-song release short – it still comes bearing the gorgeous and heavy darkness of their more droning, ambient, “metalgaze” albums, with deep and creeping vocals breathed over brooding, radio-length defying compositions.
Nadja’s Aidan Baker (guitars, woodwinds, vocals, drum machine) and Leah Buckareff (bass, vocals, accordion) now reside in Berlin. We caught up with them in Lichtenberg (the ex-Soviet borough they call home) to talk about Dagdrøm, their label Broken Spine Productions, life as ex-pats in Europe, and making music as a couple.
