ISKA DHAAF

Where are you based?

New York City. We’re originally from Seattle.

Please give an example of your music writing process?

Sometimes we write together in the moment from scratch. Other times one of us brings in an idea or part of a song and the other helps finish it. Sometimes one of us makes a song and the other edits it or restructures it. Whatever helps the emotion and idea of the song come to fruition is what we do. We both write words, produce and play several instruments.

What are you working on right now?

We have a nice little batch of new songs we’re revisiting. We’ll be experimenting and writing a bunch this year.

What is your gear setup?

Drums, bass, SPD-SX, Guitar, Vocals, Korg Synth.

What do you like to do outside of music and does it affect your music?

Read, write and travel. We try to always be consuming new ideas and meeting new people. If you surround yourself with beautiful, intelligent, and interesting art and people, it will surface in your own creations. For example, when we stayed in Paris and Berlin for a few months we got super into electronic music.

How would you describe your music genre?

Indie-electronic with both elements of pop and experimental

Do you know any music theory?

Not too much. We both have a decent understanding of it, but don’t use it often.

What are your plans for the future?

Keep touring and making records. We plan to go to a bunch of new countries next Spring.

How did you get into music?

Through friends, the radio, and siblings.

What are you listening to at the moment?

We’ve been listening to Zomby, SZA, Duero, Actress

When are you playing next?

We are doing a West Coast (USA) tour in Fall. We’ll most likely do a handful of NYC dates this summer.
