GADADU's sound, described variously as "hypnotic" and "refreshing," redefines subtlety in its careful balance of trumpet, viola, female vocals, and jazz rhythm section. The band's dramatic exchange of ideas coincides with carefully layered orchestrations, resulting in a wildly colorful improvisational framework. GADADU released their debut album And I See Night in February 2015, followed by animated video-single "Bay Songs" in November 2016. Their second album is scheduled for release in early 2018.

After receiving the Album of the Month award and a four star review for And I See Night in indie music journal No More Division, GADADU was featured on genre-defying British radio show, The CurveBall. The album went on to win the attention of prominent jazz publication and radio show, Nextbop, with a feature in Nextbop's online music journal as well as airtime on three live radio shows (91.7 FM KRTU San Antonio). Anthony Dean-Harris, editor in chief at Nextbop, described GADADU as an exquisite and grounding array of fragility and strength: "And I See Night is a surprise from a group of musicians that one could see coming except in all the ways that one couldn't." We have since performed at many of NYC's renowned original music venues including Le Poisson Rouge, Rockwood Music Hall, Manhattan Inn, Mercury Lounge and The Silent Barn. With ever-open ears, GADADU continues to draw in new listeners seeking to rediscover the imagination's zeal for color in sound, bare and essential.

‘And I See Night’ is such a refreshing change from what is dominating the mainstream culture as well as indie culture... It is accessible and doesn’t go so far down the rabbit hole of the avant-garde that it would completely ostracize anyone... Selin not only has a good voice but the melodies are often infectious and get stuck in your head.
