Listen: Marissa Nadler – Was It A Dream

Posted · Add Comment


It’s 3am in London; dark and rainy. “What did you expect?”, I say to myself as I ride back from work. The traffic light goes red and I stand there staring at the empty London Bridge ahead; lonely and silent. Loneliness I can bear, but silence…; silence leaves you alone with thoughts and fears; perplexed, exposed! The same kind of exposure artists have to deal with every time they unveil a part of their soul in the form of their art, just like Marissa.

Marissa Nadler is a girl from Massachusetts; sensitive yet raw. Don’t be fooled by her fragile voice, she’s not some kind of soft spoken doll. She has all the guts in the world to expose herself; “naked” of tech gimmicks or marketing tricks she just sings and hell she can sing! If you leave in the USA you’ll be happy to know that her new album “July” is out one week earlier than the rest of the world (damn!), so pencil it in your diary: February 4th in North America on Sacred Bones and February 10th on Bella Union for the rest of us.

If you’re curious how she sounds live then check her webpage to find when she’s visiting your area! I’m sure that afterwards you’ll be left wondering “Was It A Dream?”
