With her new EP Nihilist In The Club out this month, we caught up with LA-based musician and producer Izzy Camina to talk Arca, Berghain and chocolate.

Across her new EP Camina showcases her eclectic sound and nuanced musical dexterity as she delivers shimmering lo-fi pop alongside heady dancefloor bangers. ‘UP N DOWN’ sees her craft a simmering club track that pulses with squelching basslines and brooding dark-wave electronica, whilst tongue-in-cheek ‘Kill Your Local Indie Softboy’ offers tender, meandering dream-pop.

The first project under her own name, Nihilist In The Club encapsulates and represents a generation; from softboys to the confusions and frustrations of trying to exist at a time when the world feels pretty bleak, Camina’s narratives reflect the ups and downs of navigating identity and existence in the current digital age.
