For over a decade Nick Costa has been a highly active musician from Minnesota’s Twin Cities, and he is showing no signs of slowing down. His music has been compared to the songwriting and guitar virtuosity of Jason Isbell and the quick-witted lyrics and clever chord progressions of Father John Misty. While others would describe his songs as smart, delicate, folk songs that border on Alt-Country, he would simply consider his own songs as “sad.”
Taj Raj's elemental and atmospheric brand of indie-folk transports the listener to a world of its own making. Ethereal guitar melodies, earthy acoustic fingerpicking, breezy vocal harmonies, classical piano, and a driving rhythm section support stories inspired by English and German folklore. After two EPs and five years, the five members of Taj Raj have combined their distinctly unique musical backgrounds, including classical, folk, hardcore, punk, and shoegaze, settling into a sonic universe where aggression, grandeur, and sorrow can co-exist in a moment, ricocheting against one another amidst layers of reverberating melodies.
