Collaborative projects maintained from a distance are rather commonplace in today’s musical climate, but few retain the intimacy and ingenuity of nadine.  the three-piece is the creative byproduct of Nadia Hulett, part of the collective phantom posse, and Julian Fader and Carlos Hernandez, both of  Ava Luna.  though spread out across the country in different cities at different times, the trio linked up outside of Austin to cut oh my, an effortless, adventurous pop exercise in the form of a debut album.

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 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 .

The trio’s practice is marked by their commitment to playfulness, curiosity, and fluidity. Nadine’s songs have one foot standing firm in pop, but ebb and flow with exploration and experiment. Recorded over two years in Gravesend Studios in Brooklyn, NY and Dripping Springs in Austin, TX. Polyphonic melodies swing and gambol, instrumental layers take generous flourishes and unexpected turns with an ear to the wondrous and occasionally weird, crafting jazz-tinged lounge-pop all held together by Hulett’s characteristic vocals, strong with a sincerity and gentleness that holds the listener.

nadine’s debut is out today via father/daughter in the united states and memphis industries everywhere else.
