Fusing a gritty, grunge-infused aura with traditional folk-inspired musicality, Naz & Ella channel their anger and frustration at the world through tightly wound harmonies and intricate guitar riffs.
Their second EP (DE)HUMANISE, released in May 2021, sees the duo continue to share their social commentary and perspectives on issues including internalised queerphobia, normalised sexual harassment, the exotification of women of colour and the hypocrisy of speciesism. Blending influences such as The Cranberries, Nirvana and PJ Harvey, the north London-based duo’s raw and intimate sound captivates listeners, with their delicate but defiant vocals front and centre.
Naz & Ella have been dubbed as ones to watch by Soundsphere Magazine and received plays across BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Radio London and Radio DIVA, including a performance live on BBC Introducing Beds, Herts and Bucks.
