Nordra is the solo project by Brooklyn-based artist Monika Khot, who fronts the band Zen Mother and to be found on bass touring with Daughters. She creates her design of the future of pop using an incredibly intense mix of noise, electronic beats, her ethereal voice, and various live instruments such as a guitar and a pocket trumpet. Her last album Pylon II is the soundtrack to a modern dance and, like her debut album, was released on the renowned Sige label by Aaron Turner (Isis / Mamiffer / Sumac) and Faith Coloccia (Mamiffer). The work was voted one of the top 20 albums of 2018 by the Wire Magazine.
