Hannah Benedum

Hannah Louve Benedum is the vocalist in the dreamo band Nava Calma. 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 channels 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.

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 of how one might find a place in this world full of endless stimuli and sounds so rich they turn into white noise.
