nuaia “belong to the moon”

BPCD019, BoogiePost Recordings, 2015

“belong to the moon”, Nuaia’s second album on the Swedish label BoogiePost Recordings, is a continuation of the trio’s voyages in the sonic landscapes between pop, free improv and experimental music.


The album is a collection of undressed indie ballads, with distant cinematic echoes from Blade Runner and Ennio Morricone. Occasionally, a wave of Indonesian gamelan and ambiences à la Brian Eno appears, but regardless of influences, Nuaia is holding on to the the musical and lyrical core. Not a word too much. Rather repetition than unnecessary variation. In a universe where song, drums and acoustic instruments meets electronic soundscapes, personal stories are born, presented with an unusual intensity and presence.

The swedish/danish band Nuaia’s self-titled album is capturing three true sound wizards at their finest, making 100% additive-free magic with drums, guitars, voice and electronics. An unusual trust in tranquility, beauty and simplicity makes Nuaia’s debut the most stripped-down album released on BoogiePost to date, but for sure also one of the most intense.
