Narcloudia is an indie dreampop trio formed in 2012, with the current line-up consisting of Beatrix Alcala (vocals/guitars/synth), Karla Pundaodaya (drums/vocals), and Domini Robledo (bass). After releasing their EP ‘Sky Spectre’ back in 2014, they are back with ‘Day-Blind Stars’ (LP) which was released in October 2018.
Their music is described to have looming dreamlike, goth, and shoegaze soundscapes injected with melodic bass lines and trippy beats. Reviews of Sky Spectre relate the band’s haunting sounds as something that feels like out of a Tim Burton or David Lynch movie soundtrack, while reviews of Day-Blind Stars bring into mind influences from The Cure and Cocteau Twins.

***On the name: ‘Narcloudia’***
Narcloudia is a Frankenword stitched with a bloody needle:
/narcolepsy/ + /clouds/ and the suffix /-ia/
Either indicative of a proper noun i.e. of a planet, an undiscovered disease perhaps or a bandname, YES. Why? because neologism is fun, and why the hell not?
