GRÜN WASSER(Chicago) is inspired by the juxtaposition of beauty and tragedy in the world. Keely Dowd and Essej Pollock formed GRÜN WASSER in Chicago, USA in 2015. Together, they combine influences to create music that explores expression through the feelings and colors of specific moments. The nearly apocalyptic social conditions throughout the world can be heard in the pounding bass rhythms and dynamic, anguished vocals. GRÜN WASSER stands in solidarity with all people who have been disenfranchised by the negligent powers of society.
“There’s an almost uncomfortable tactility to My Home in the Year. In the monstrous opening title track, heavy metal objects are dragged and feet clunk on hardwood floors, juxtaposed with heavily manipulated loops of Tosswill’s spellbinding voice.”
-Noise Not Music
Nadia is Ashley Bennett, currently based in Portland, Maine. She uses a wide range of tones, textures, and frequencies while maintaining a taut sense of tension and sharp balance. Some tracks build in intensity through the layering of what sounds like water, human breath, and various clicks that evoke an ASMR-like sensation. Others take us outside through wide-screen field recordings before introducing synthesizer of nearly inaudible frequencies, cradled by her own whispering voice.
