Nansea Marek Polgesek Berlin Nansea (ˈnænsi) is the musical moniker of Berlin-based musician Marek Polgesek. With their music, they create a queer indie/chamber pop sound that goes beyond the traditional singer-songwriter style, while paying tribute to gender nonconforming artists that inspire them. Their sound has been described as a ‘more whimsical Rufus Wrainwright’ and reminiscent of Jeff Buckley and The Irrepressibles. The themes of Nansea's music address their individual experience of the world, with its clashes between hetero-normative constraints, and the incredibly diverse countercultures that arise from it. Their central theme is suffering as an integral part of life and as a force that brings us together as sensual and emotional beings. While they're embedded in Berlin's local queer scene and community, they seek to find a way to convey the personal feelings we experience as part of this community in a universal language we all share. This language materializes in the form of Nansea's Queer Indie/Chamber Pop sound.
