Jack music Life Wow .. Marissa brought us a beautiful cd full of melancholy..... voice and melodies are taking us out there. All the colors of the dark makes me shivering. Divers is a great one too... and from now on, Marissa is not a stranger for me anymore. Please take time to listen to her incredible cd. You will not be disappointed ! Favorite track: All the Colors of the Dark.

Douglas Leinen Strangers is an evolution of what has come before but the core of what draws the listener in is still there, unchanged. Favorite track: Katie I Know.

Lea Felicitas A beautiful and haunting record. "Janie in Love" was put on my Spotify Discover Weekly of all places, and it was the first track of Marissa's I ever heard. I've been listening to her a lot since then, but am waiting for autumn to purchase her other albums because I think no other season suits her music better. Favorite track: Janie in Love.

about

For more than 12 years, Marissa Nadler has perfected her own take on the exquisitely sculpted gothic American songform. On her seventh full-length, Strangers, she has shed any self-imposed restrictions her earlier albums adhered to, stepped through a looking glass, and created a truly monumental work.

In the two years since 2014’s elegiac, autobiographical July, Nadler has reconciled the heartbreak so often a catalyst for her songwriting. Turning her writing to more universal themes, Nadler dives deep into a surreal, apocalyptic dreamscape. Her lyrics touch upon the loneliness and despair of the characters that inhabit them. These muses are primal, fractured, disillusioned, delicate, and alone. They are the unified voice of this record, the titular “strangers.”
