Critical acclaim for Strangers, released earlier this year on Bella Union…

“Marissa Nadler is someone still committed to building the grand musical palaces. Acoustic Americana of epic proportions… Strangers expands her sonic palette even more, with piano, strings and a rhythm section, yet her voice achieves grandeur through subtlety and understatement.” Uncut – 8/10

“Imbued with filmic ebb and flow, Nadler has moved forward with a delicate yet steel-spined album of intimate soliloquies. If David Lynch were looking to soundtrack dreamlike disassociation he need look no further.” MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“It would probably be a good idea to lash yourself to the mast before listening to Strangers, because if there’s a singer around these days who could lure sailors to their doom against the rocks, it’s Marissa Nadler.” Sunday Times (Album of the Week)

“Here’s something dark to succumb to. Marissa Nadler has a voice you’d happily take intravenously, one part tremulous country siren, one part cabaret chanteuse. You feel you’ve discovered a portal between this world and the next.” Evening Standard – 4 Stars ****

Strangers is essentially a 45-minute, black-velvet swoon, seductive and unsettling in equal measure, Nadler’s fabulous voice swathed in reverb and luring listeners into a darkly sensual otherworld.” Metro – 4 Stars ****

“Marissa Nadler is a singer blessed with an extraordinary voice… The music fits vaguely into the genre of dream pop, with enough beauty to get under your skin.” 

The Times – 4 Stars ****

“Another faultless collection from Nadler, fast becoming one of the most distinctive voices in American music.” Record Collector – 4 Stars ****

“This is a true epic of love and longing wreathed in the dry ice of synth swirl and bluesy guitar, underpinned by songs of startling beauty.”  Monocle
