GADADU's sound, described as "hypnotic" and "refreshing," merges extended song-forms with improvisation and pop production. Lead singer Hannah Selin's distinctive voice floats through soundscapes of strings, trumpet, tenor sax, and synths. Based in Brooklyn, GADADU's songs grow out of cracks in the sidewalk and through the stumps of old trees, exploring the borders between city and nature. The band released their debut album And I See Night in February 2015, followed by animated video-single "Bay Songs" in November 2016. GADADU's second album is scheduled for release in October 2018. GADADU was awarded a residency at Avaloch Farm Music Institute in 2016, where they drafted much of the music for their upcoming album. The band tours regularly throughout the Northeast, and has performed at many of NYC's renowned original music venues and concert halls including including Le Poisson Rouge, Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, LeFrak Concert Hall and Arlene's Grocery.rick

... some cosmic kind of spirit is clearly at play ... evoking the spacy eloquence of Kamasi Washington, Sun Ra, and Pharoah Sanders ...
— Tristan Kneschke, Tiny Mix Tapes
A sound that seems initially fragile, with songs that turn in unexpected but welcome places, that reward repeat listens for the sake of being enveloped in something so fresh, is something to behold.
— Anthony Dean-Harris, Editor-in-Chief at Nextbop.com
‘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.
