Analogical and digital, organic and mechanical; the swiss electropop band namaka finds its balance in between rough electronic beats and fluid sound scapes.
One of Sophie Adam’s most relevant influence is without doubt the Icelandic artist Björk. Her feminine way of creating music veiled in rough electronic beats particularly fascinates the young singer. Precisely this conflict between the Human and the machine inspired the band’s first EP. Produced by Alexandre Maurer (Marquis Malanga), this Debut called Apron Ties was released in April 2017. One month later, the CD was selected by the Swiss radio RTS Option Musique to be presented as the « Album of the Week » at the end of Mai and also in the swiss radio programme Paradiso in august 2017. Feminine touch and moon landscapes, this first EP opens new horizons, in which the voice draws a golden line.
