Marissa Nadler - "Was It A Dream"

New MusicjeremyComment

Even though she has firmly planted herself as a wonderful, talented indie-folk singer/songwriter, Marissa Nadler's has not found a larger audience. It's quite a shame, and her most recent releases attest to that. She has a new record on the way, though, and has just dropped a second song from it, which is quite beautiful. Haunting backing vocals, a lumbering beat, a forlorn electric guitar, and a simple chord progression lead the proceedings. Nadler's voice is still as stunning as ever, and the melody is deceitfully simple. Her new record is shaping up quite nicely, I'd say, though despite the title, don't expect a very warm, summery listen.

Stream the song above and keep your eyes peeled for July, out February 4 via Sacred Bones.
