“A stunning combination of cinematic dream pop and heart wrenching melodies: warm, dark, soothing and hauntingly beautiful. Nevada Drive take audiences on a journey from the intimate and gentle to the aching and intense. A mesmerizing experience."
Nevada Drive is a Dutch band from Amsterdam founded by singer-songwriter Christine Oele and guitarist/producer Rene Ahoud. They met each other searching for ancient audio equipment and discovered a mutual passion for haunting melodies, electronic experimentation and cinematic soundscapes. But more than that, they shared a certain unrequited longing that was translated into their music. Their debutalbum Fernweh brought them radio and television shows, a Canadian indie release and a performance on the famous Dutch Lowlands festival.
Their second, High Resolution Blues, was released in April 2012. This time they started with acoustic instruments and experimented within the boundaries of conventional song structures. They let songs waver from small and intimate to big and orchestral, from traditional to avantgarde and from folk to ambient. The lyrics are populated by demons, goddesses, classical heroes and mere mortals, searching fatal shorelines and unreachable heavens. It’s a striking combination of cinematic soundscapes and heart-wrenching melodies: dark, dreamlike and hauntingly beautiful.
