Nadja is a duo of multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker and bassist Leah Buckareff formed in 2003. Nadja creates music that has been described as ambient doom, dreamsludge, and metalgaze, combining the atmospheric textures of shoegaze and ambient music with the heaviness and volume of metal and noise.
Nadja has released numerous recordings on such labels as Alien8 Recordings, Hydrahead Records, Important Records, Essence Music, and their own label, Broken Spine Productions. The duo has toured and performed extensively around the world, appearing at such diverse festivals as SXSW, FIMAV, Roadburn, and Unsound.[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=2322029309 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]
