—ambient doom, dreamsludge, and metalgaze—
atmospheric textures of shoegaze and ambient music
Nadja is a duo of multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker and bassist/vocalist 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, Robotic Empire, 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.
In addition to Nadja, Baker is also active as a writer, a solo musician, and the group projects
Caudal, B/B/S/, Adoran, and Whisper Room. He has released many solo albums and is the
author of four collections of poetry. Buckareff is also the owner-operator of Coldsnap Bindery, a
production house of handmade books, and curator of The Wunderkabinet, a wandering
exhibition of art, craft, and curious, and The Lesen Lounge, a mobile zine library.
Originally from Toronto, Canada, the duo now resides in Berlin.
