Nava Calma was born out of a desire for symbiosis. For connection. From the very beginning as a solo project of a young musician looking for meaning, its intent was to connect the sonic dots of its creator’s identity to form something that’s more than the sum of its parts.
Now acting as a full band the four-piece from Berlin, Germany channel their innermost connection to the world around them through weeping melodies perched on top of shoegazey pads and soundscapes which are then delivered with an explosive and manic urgency and relentless drums. Their sound nests within the realms of Post-Rock, Shoegaze, Post-Metal and the ever so ambiguous term “dreamo”, drawing from artists like Holy Fawn, Emma Ruth Rundle or Koi No Yokan-era Deftones.

Their first full length album „The Full Weight Of Everything“ shows the dynamic range the band is capable of. A gentle hum that lulls you in is paired with gravity defying blankets of sound and piercing lead lines. One second it’s loud, hectic and cathartic. Then it’s quiet, embracing and delicate. An unexpected, daring genre-shift away from the project’s glitch/breakbeat beginnings travelling further back to the start of the members‘ musical origins. Guitar music. A change that was equally scary and freeing.
Vocalist Hannah Louve Benedum speaks about what it means to be a human surrounded by other humans. How we relate to each other. How the smallest action can have the biggest impact and begs the question how one might find a place in this world full of endless stimuli and sounds so rich they turn into white noise.
How do you bear the full weight of everything and what will it do to you when you finally feel it?
The band describes it as: „A celebration of youth, its fickleness and growing up.”
