Narcloudia is an indie dreampop trio formed in 2012 by Beatrix Alcala, Vhop Pascua (2012-2017), and Karla Pundaodaya. Originally a band of 4, Domini Robledo was part of the formation as lead guitarist until she had to leave Singapore in 2012. In May 2017, she has rejoined the line-up to take over as bassist shortly following Vhop’s amicable split with the group. A long hiatus in recording after releasing their EP ‘Sky Spectre’ back in 2014, their upcoming full length album ‘Day-Blind Stars’ is targeted to be released early next year (2018), with sound engineer/music producer Daniel Garcia (EarthMover/PointBee Multimedia) behind the helm.
Their music is described to have looming dreamike, lo-fi, 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.

***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?
