Iska Dhaaf (taken from Somali, translating roughly to “let it go”) is a Seattle-based duo composing meditative, circular post-punk. Nathan Quiroga and Benjamin Verdoes dive into rhythmically-driven music with poppy indie rock melodies, all inspired by Sufi poetry. The band stopped by to share some songs and chat with Maia about the project.
