Brooklyn, NY based artist Rachika Nayar today announced that her second full-length album, Heaven Come Crashing, will be released on August 26th, 2022 via NNA Tapes.
Heaven Come Crashing finds the protean guitarist and electronic producer expanding on the ghostly netherworlds of her acclaimed debut, Our Hands Against The Dusk, and the intimate guitar miniatures of companion EP, fragments, with vivid, fluorescent, cinematic maximalism.
Alongside the announcement, Nayar shared a Will Hart-directed music video for the album’s lead single, “Heaven Come Crashing”. The title track offers a glimpse of Nayar’s sharp left-turn on the album towards explosive electronic, as she melds her signature granular guitar contortions with haunting vocals from ambient pop artist maria bc and a sampled synth from Rafael Anton Irissari — the result is an atmospheric fantasia evoking reverence-filled arenas, a slow build to kinetic breakbeats that crescendo with wild abandon.
