*“…theatrical, poignant, unflinching and desperately meaningful. Her name is Ciscandra Nostalghia and she’s out of this f**king world." – SYFFAL
”…one of the most original new artists on the music scene today, A journey between light and dark, ‘Chrysalis’ has enough pop-like elements to push it forward, though with a noir and avant-garde framework…an artist with a vision and a unique style.“ –RockSubculture
"Euphoria meets rage on this chaotic, dramatic debut by Nostalghia. FIVE STARS” –Examiner
“Vocal splashes of Diamonda Galas, Kate Bush and Siouxsie Sioux, combined with the artistic freedom and sight of a Perry Farrell, Nostalghia are relevant, current and have their finger on the pulse of the future." – PlaybackStL
Nostalghia is comprised of vocalist/songwriter Ciscandra Nostalghia, keyboardist/producer/drummer Roy Gnan, who met each other on Craig’s List, and touring cellist Adele Stein. With Gnan’s BA in jazz performance and cache of instruments, computers and other electronic gear, combined with Ciscandra’s artistic bravery that is the product of the collision of two entirely different worlds – Los Angeles and Tehran, Iran, they make provocative, uncompromising and cinematic music. Early supporters run the gamut from Skrillex to Marilyn Manson to Amy Lee of Evanscence to former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. The band has been embraced by a wide variety of audiences, having shared the stage with artists including Jared Leto’s 30 Seconds to Mars, Gogol Bordello, Green Day, The Orb, Serj Tankian, and Avenged Sevenfold. With Chrysalis, the band’s debut album that was mixed by multi-Platinum producer/mixer Dave Fortman and released April 8 (110 Recordings/ INgrooves), Nostalghia proves they are not your average alt/rock band.
