Tickets zu NAUSICA + BIKINI JESUS Berlin



Named after the Hayao Miyazaki film Nausica of the Valley of the Wind, the four piece band Nausica inhabits a music world as cinematic as its namesake. Over the past few years they have steadily crafted an arresting and meditative sound, sitting at the cutting-edge of pop music.

Frontwoman Edita Karkoschka’s operatic lead vocals carrying an emotive quality reminiscent of PJ Harvey while the colorful guitar-lines of Tim Coehoorn, driven by Haim-like shifts, transform their songs into explosive powerhouses. Haunted by melancholia, - the lush and playful bass of Pim Walter combined with the electronic and acoustic beats of Jannis Knüpfer, - served straight up, frame an ever-present sea of hypnotizing, positive vibrations.


As soon as they meet, the dreadful Berlin weather turns into bright sunshine. Little is known about how exactly this works, but it seems to require a certain ritual involving reverb-drenched guitars, hypnotic bass lines, twisted drum beats and bittersweet vocals. Despite a lack of scientific evidence, Bikini Jesus continue to celebrate their climate-change voodoo in front of selected audiences.
