New Orleans based Sara Storm aka Nail Club's latest LP Mise en Abyme is like a mystique journey down the abyss where lo-fi minimal synthpop notes are flowing all over.

An addictive collection of 8 atmospheric, emotional tracks, reminiscent of some of the greats - Algebra Suicide, Futurisk, Anne Clark, and Esplendor Geometrico. 


Nail Club's music involves analog synthesizers such as Korg Minilogue and Korg Monologue BK and lo-fi processes to create compelling synth pop that’s intriguing and mysterious.
Sara records her tunes to a Tascam 4-track cassette recorder. For drum machine she uses the Korg KR-55 and Korg Volca with samples from the legendary Roland TR-808.

"I cannot stress enough how much Korg’s ‘logue; systems changed making music for me. Their ease of use is one component and I believe anyone can use these synths without intimidation. The Korg Volca sampler is the drum machine I enjoy using because you can easily change or reshape tones. The only odd thing is having to connect your telephone device in order to upload specific samples", Sara confides.
