Marissa Nadler | Was It a Dream

January 14, 2014 at 7:14 pm Leave a comment

Marissa Nadler is streaming a gorgeous new track, “Was It a Dream”, from off her upcoming release, “July”,  out on February 4th via Sacred Bones and Feb. 10th through Bella Union. The song finds Nadler adding a bluesy slow-burning electric guitar to match her pretty drawn-out singing. I’m not sure how much one artist takes in from touring with another, but the vocals feel slightly influenced by Nadler’s time with Sharon Van Etten from what I can hear. It’s the way words and melodies become elongated over the top of three or four beats. It’s really a complex arrangement, with stunning vocal melodies, all made to sound easy and drifting. I like this direction for Nadler. “July” is the follow up to Nadler’s 2012 eight-song release, “Sister”. — David D. Robbins Jr.
