The Nausea

Requiem (LP)

Label: Absurd Exposition, Buried In Slag And Debris.

Format: LP

Genre: Noise

Preorder: Releases June 7th 2024


On Requiem, Vancouver-based composer and musician Anju Singh combines funerary violin and harsh noise, as illustrated in an excerpt from liner notes by Gordon Ashworth (Oscillating Innards, Knelt Rote): "Requiem is an album of the violin engaged in a multi-dimensional way. Merging forms of music and anti-music; burning a violin as a means of achieving the instrument's ultimate dramatic and sonic potential, and guiding the ritual object into a symbolic death." 

Singh is recognized in the noise world for her long-running role as curator of the Vancouver Noise Fest, and in punk and metal circles as a member of the bands Ahna, Grave Infestation and Ceremonial Bloodbath, among others. The Nausea returns to Absurd Exposition after the 2017 tape 'Requiem Aeternam'. Fresh off of a short tour of Japan surrounding the Machine Parts Festival in Tokyo, where advanced copies of the LP sold out, The Nausea is gearing up for a short Canadian tour this July, culminating in an appearance the Initial Shock festival in Montreal, and will be touring Europe this fall alongside long-running drone metal duo Nadja.
