LOS ANGELES - Jan. 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Nacosta’s “Under the Half Moon”, artwork by Sheva Kafai (

“Now Nacosta is wrapping up work on its debut full-length, “Under the Half Moon,” and the first single “Aberlina” finds the band reaching for rarefied air. Soaked in more atmospherics and imbued with complex textures, “Aberlina” sounds more in league with sonic sophisticates Kiev and the Moth & the Flame than the straight-ahead nu-gazing of Nacosta’s early stages.”
-Kevin Bronson, Buzz Bands LA

Los Angeles based psychedelic-rock band Nacosta prepare to release their debut full-length album, “Under the Half Moon”. The album’s first single, “Aberlina” brought the band into the indie music spotlight.  Nacosta’s sound is based in rock but pulls strongly from folk, psychedelic and electronic music.  “Under the Half Moon” will be released 3/4/2014 in conjunction with the band’s National tour.

Nacosta was formed in 2011 by brothers, Brandon and Shane Graham. After years of playing in different bands, the time was right for them to form a band together. They were fortunate to share a similar vision for the band's musical direction as well as influences, including Elliott Smith, (Substance Co. artist) Tame Impala, Radiohead, and Wilco.

“Our inspiration for the album was to evolve our sound from our previous releases and to incorporate more electronic sounds and beats into our songs” says Brandon.

The title is partially inspired by the Graham brothers' penchant for being night owls who often wrote and recorded at night. Another big part of inspiration came from collaborating with electronic musician and producer Christian Gibson on the record.

Watch the video for the album’s first single, “Aberlina”, available now:
