FFO: Nadedja – Memories of a parallel past | NARC. | Reliably informed

Northeast Solo Artist Nadedja follows June’s release, Holographic Sickening Love, with an “energetically earthy and sexual” alt-pop offering, Memories of a Parallel Past. Recorded at the Motor Museum Recording Studio in Liverpool and mixed and produced by Bob Mackenzie, the song is accompanied by a swish music video (released August 31) which was filmed and directed by Ryan Peebles of Gadabout Films.

The song, with its synthesized sound and rich, soulful vocals, is about reminiscing about youth and exploring sexuality for the first time and about feeling madly physically attracted to someone and not being able to express it only with words. .

Here, Nadedja gives us three songs that sum up his last piece…

Maggie Rogers – Want Want

It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t start this playlist with Maggie Rogers. She has been such a constant in my ears, a true companion in all things life and one of my biggest inspirations. ‘Want Want’ is the second single from her latest album ‘Surrender’; a HUGE song: intense, raw, sexy and incredibly provocative. The heavily distorted guitars, energetic drums and sultry lyrics are definitely something I channeled into Memories of a Parallel Past as well. I like to think of these songs as kindred spirits, especially after not hearing “Want Want” until after completely finishing SOAPP.


ROSALÍA is my spirit animal. She is an entity; his songs are pure creative magic, full of complexity; his words are fierce and fervent; and its production is unquestionably original, ambitious in its essence. A Palé remains one of my favorites, the dense sub-bass, the silky undertones and the heavy drop are insane! Plus, the powerful lyrics inspired a new notion of power and sexuality that I’ve always longed to explore. I can definitely see it in my music and in my life now.

MUNA – What I want

MUNA always reminds me that pop music can be fun, feminine, powerful, bold and immersive all at the same time! I like music where you can both cry and dance to it, you can get lost in it, feel it all, dance it all, and MUNA gives me exactly that. What I Want is the most liberating, fearless and uplifting anthem I’ve heard in a long time. The gripping synths, mixed with their poppy lyrics and vibrant soundscapes are to die for – all qualities I can definitely associate with Memories of a Parallel Past.
