BADA (SE) feat. Anna Von Hausswolff
Kraut/psychedelic collective BADA was created in 2019 by Anna Von Hausswolff, David Sabel, Gianluca Grasselli, Filip Leyman and Hannes Nilsson – some of whom also perform as part of Anna Von Hausswolff’s own solo project. Through cinematic organ drones, tribal rhythms, heavy distortions and a shared desire to “reunite the essential bonds between music and physical worlds”, BADA is a captivating and constantly evolving force of creativity that demands to be witnessed in a live setting.
One of the most seen and favored acts on 2021 Roadburn Festival Redux edition, the band added the sixth member Christoffer Darshed and is now ready to tour Europe, after the self-titled vinyl album out on Anna’s Pomperipossa Records sold out already twice reaching a cult status.
"Too weighty to be classed as a jam, too fluid to feel like any composed work you’ve ever heard, it’s a moving spectacle to watch and hear" - Echoes And Dust (BADA review Roadburn Redux 2021).

SUPPORT: ANA FOSCA
The steady ascent of ANA FOSCA, the moniker of Copenhagen's Linn Hvid, is unmistakable in its rousing articulation of experimental music's most visceral and noisy frontiers.
Hvid's initial forays saw her navigating arts institutions that run adjacent to, though remain relatively disconnected from, the rich underground of the city's music scenes. It's Mayhem in particular—the infamous venue with its indispensable studio spaces for a plethora of local bands and musicians—where Hvid first found herself in a community of kindred spirits and artists. Playing early shows in and around the noise circle in this fertile environment, and long a devotee of Mayhem Noise Fest, she was soon performing regularly across Denmark, Sweden, and Germany in the crucible of self-organised venues and squatted premises. Having forged ANA FOSCA in these heady circumstances, Hvid's performances and recordings are imbued with an intuitive immediacy that's rarely summoned so naturally.
ANA FOSCA is best captured by the novel labels that pirouette around the idea of noise as genre—yet this remains a trap. Whether we describe Hvid's work as death industrial, dark ambient, or even drone, it's the turbulent pull between introverted and extroverted states that defines her music. Experimentation remains the driver, careening her work into tension with a multitude of sound practices and forms around the scaffolding of electroacoustics.
At once arresting and meditative, the intensity of ANA FOSCA remains delicate in structure. The urgency and shock of her synthesis and compositions can swiftly tumble into whispering grievances and suffocating reflections. Circling themes of sorrow and existential agitation, the terse intimacy of playing loud when playing live is balanced by Hvid's keen desire to communicate with the audience.
Now a resident at Mayhem, Hvid's debut album, SOMA, was released on the Russian label Nazlo Records in 2020 and received admirable attention. It was selected by the Helen Scarsdale Agency as one of the best releases of the year, and was acclaimed by the independent experimental music site Ukośnik. Appearing with Sortlegeme at Mayhem Noise Fest 2020/2021, Martin Breidahl selected the performance as one of the best of the year for Passive/Aggressive. Hvid has also recently played collaboratively with Vanity Productions, Posh Isolation's Christian Stadsgaard. Other appearances include The 48HOURS Festival in Copenhagen, ETER Festival in Lund, Sweden, as well as Berlin's Autonoma Industriale.
