Nava Golchini, who was born in Tehran and now lives in Milan, is embarking on a new chapter in her career as she learns to balance her Persian and Italian sides. NAVA finds inspiration in the works of Sevdaliza, Sega Bodega, Arca, and Rosala as she continues on this journey, while her own sound can be compared to Arca, Grimes, and M.
As we’re introduced to NAVA’s latest captivating hit, futuristic themes mix with the realm of pop.
‘Gaz,’ which tells the story of a terrifying siren calling to her prey, manages to combine mysticism with a strong, in-your-face attitude accentuated by glitching basslines and sensuous vocals, manages to combine mysticism with a forceful, in-your-face attitude.
NAVA tells us, “With Gaz I was able to explore my Persian roots on a whole new level. It’s so strange because when we were in the studio the first time working on the track, the beat we started from had quite a Persian flair to it. I was quite surprised because when I was jotting down the melody for the chorus, only Persian words or idioms came to me! And like always, I let the creative process flow because it’s the most honest.”
