Here to remind us that music is not just an audible experience, Minneapolis/New York’s NADINE make melodies that transcend acoustics. Their debut album oh my is a collection of sophisticated modern pop songs that resonate in the gaps, the space between deadlines and timelines.More akin to poetry set to music, NADINE is all about exploring feeling. Whilst most poets revel in the personal, NADINE’s process is collaborative whose core is singer Nadia Hulett (part of the loose collective Phantom Posse) and Julian Fader and Carlos Hernandez (both of Ava Luna). The trio’s practice is marked by their commitment to playfulness, curiosity, and uidity.The trio started oh my two years ago at Gravesend Recordings in Brooklyn and then, after Nadia’s relocation to Austin, they ventured out for a week to Dripping Springs and took over the home and studio of Dan Duszynski and Emily Cross (Cross Record) while they toured the US.Album highlights include rst single “Ultra Pink ,” a light-hearted song about knowing you can do something before you do it and resisting the boxes people like to put us in, and “Not My Kinda Movie” which reects on the nature of desire and our current entry points for connection on social media in this unique time. Another song, ” Pews,” places its reverie on the moral inuences of a childhood spent in the church, the secrets around dying and the shattering awe of loving.oh my then, is an uncovering. A space that opens, suddenly, and a process that catches you. Kids biking down a suburban street in late afternoon. An ultra pink vest that infuses the wearer with a great and necessary condence. A state of mind. Through a period of uncertainty and limbo, searching for steadier footing, walking on intuition, led by feeling. oh my lls space with warmth and softness, each song creating its own expansive dream-world awash in memories and secret keys to a puzzle so ungraspable it takes up a lifetime.
