Nostalghia Spreads Its Wings

Chrysalis, Nostalghia’s debut is a darkly atmospheric yet ethereal album. Roy Gnan’s alternately eerie and powerful instrumentation blends beautifully with Ciscandra Nostalghia’s amorphously changing vocals and surreally emotional lyrics. According to Ciscandra “you can hear the sound of a moth throughout the entire album. At one point it comes out of my mouth and you … Continue reading

Illusions radiating out from the real. You’re rocked into submission, but … Continue reading
