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 for And I See Night in indie music journal Divide and Conquer, 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 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." Later, the album received a review and recommendation on the well known jazz publication, Bird is the Worm. GADADU was awarded a residency at Avaloch Music Institute where they drafted much of the music for their upcoming album. 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 open ears, GADADU continues to draw in new listeners interested in a fresh take on music and song.

‘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.
