Named after the Hayao Miyazaki film Nausica of the Valley of the Wind, the multinational four piece band Nausica inhabits a music world as cinematic as its namesake. Over the past few years they have steadily crafted an arresting and meditative sound, sitting at the cutting-edge of pop music. Frontwoman Edita Karkoschka’s operatic lead vocals carrying an emotive quality reminiscent of PJ Harvey while the colorful guitar-lines of Tim Coehoorn, driven by Haim-like shifts, transform their songs into explosive powerhouses. Haunted by melancholia, - the lush and playful bass of Pim Walter combined with the electronic and acoustic beats of Jannis Knüpfer, - served straight up, frame an ever-present sea of hypnotizing, positive vibrations. It should come as no surprise that the members of Nausica are as different as their influences. Since forming in 2013, the band has managed to not only survive but thrive with multiple cultural influences. With members hailing from The Netherlands and Germany, Nausica have continued to write and produce their own material. With the quartet’s love for visual experience, an ongoing collaboration with fashion designer and illustrator Sarah Knüpfer, began with the styling for their latest 3 videos and has equally extended into their stage performances.
