Thelma is Natasha Jacobs haunting and chilling musical and artistic manifestation. The project itself began with Natasha as a solo endeavor but soon became a band when Daniel Siles, Maciej Lewandowsk joined.
Sounding pure and spontaneously expressive, Thelma’s precious harmony is moving, moody and disconcerting. Natasha Jacob’s work as a composer, vocalist and guitarist is utterly compelling, and along with the rest of the band everything matches in perfection, bringing new dynamics and new levels of intensity.
The Brooklyn-based band’s forthcoming self-titled debut album arrives on February on Tiny Engines. So, if you’re into unconventional and minimal electronica with the fascinating Kate Bush vocal esque and lush folk song structures, this might be your new favourite band for 2017.
