HAUSFRAU is the solo project of Glasgow-based musician and artist Claudia Nova.
Adhering to a spare, minimalist aesthetic, the music of HAUSFRAU balances its cold electronic veneer with the emotive, soulful expression of Nova’s voice. Transitioning deftly from a delicate whisper to a soaring, controlled serenade, Nova brings breathtaking depth and emotion to the sparse foundations of her compositions.
Taking cues from electronic music pioneers like Throbbing Gristle, Human League and Suicide and melding it with the vocal style and ability of timeless torch-singers such as Dusty Springfield, Julee Cruise and Marc Almond, the music of HAUSFRAU explores and exploits the stark, beating heart of the dark dance.
