Iska Dhaaf (taken from Somali, translated roughly to “let it go”)
Inspired by Sufi poetry, limitation, and an obsessive preoccupation with writing, Nathan Quiroga and Benjamin Verdoes have fused their seemingly disparate musical and personal backgrounds into something searching and honest. Their songs, with heavy rhythms and cutting melodic hooks, are at once infectious and sweetly disarming.
New and unnamed band with members of Young Lungs, CanyonLands, and Train Conductor.
