Marissa Nadler – “Was It A Dream”

The dark, mesmeric folk singer Marissa Nadler will release her new album July in a few weeks, and we’ve already posted the first single “Dead City Emily.” “Was It A Dream,” the second song she’s shared, starts out as a quiet, minimal songs, but then it piles on gauzy dream-pop effects and psych-rock guitars and mournful violins (or maybe those are trumpets?). The build is so calm and assured that the song never loses its hushed intimacy. Listen to it below.

July is out 2/4 on Sacred Bones.
