Chestnut

Chestnut is an experimental sound duo comprised of artists Christina Santa Cruz, and Daniel Watkins. Beginning as a Letterist response to the posturing of American "classic rock” Chestnut has matured towards a practice that incorporates elements of harsh noise, ambient music, and field recording. Their work carries implicit narrative without explicit intent.

"Sometimes, though, the world inverts, turns upside-down, and the unexplainable breaks through. Things don’t always make sense, and Chestnut’s shadow-strewn music is a part of that inversion.” (James Catchpole, A Closer Listen)
