NausicaEccentric quartet Nausica prepare to release their cinematic single Black & White on 11th May 2018 via Knight Rider Records.
Black & White symbolically describes two different mindsets in the form of an ongoing flashback. The band elaborates, “conscious choices are made with clear memories, in contradiction to the typical grey area, where everything you feel and do seems blurry. The chorus could be perceived as the deep, powerful and colourful output of emotions, almost losing the feeling for reality”. Mesmerising electronic soundscapes carry the track effortlessly alongside lead singer Edita Karkoschka's smooth, rich vocals, sounding akin to the likes of PJ Harvey or Karen O. As the instantly infection choral line comes into play, Tim Coehoorn’s jangling guitar swoops into full force, adding a Foals-esque addictive twang to the band’s textured and refreshing sound.
Since forming in 2013, Nausica have continued to work from their home countries of both Germany and the Netherlands, writing and producing their own material. With Black & White, Nausica will undoubtedly captivate listeners with their distinctive and transcendental musicality.
Black & White is out 11th May 2018 via Knight Rider Records.
