Pacifica Reveal the Raw Emotion at the Heart of Their Music in 'Freak Scene: NAK Sessions'


Argentinian pop-rock duo Pacifica is starting the year with a treat for fans of their debut album, Freak Scene. Ines and Martina have a unique story, starting as internet friends and becoming bandmates. They’re hot off the heels of an incredible debut year, including their festival debut at Primavera Sound Buenos Aires, supporting Måneskin, and playing sold-out shows across the world. Now, the girls are stripping back select fan favorites from the album for an extra look into the details of the music.

There’s a certain kind of magic that’s impossible to capture in a studio recording, and for bands like Pacifica, live performance energy enhances their music tenfold. That’s why fans of Freak Scene, especially those who might not have had the pleasure of seeing the electric duo live yet, will be excited to dive into the NAK Sessions. The special tracks chosen for a stripped-down treatment—“Change Your Mind,” “Fantasies,” and “Silent Affection”—happen to signal the end of the original album.

Recorded at the studio where their debut album was born, Freak Scene: NAK Sessions showcases how beautifully intertwined the duo sounds from countless hours spent perfecting their synchronicity and harmony. The live guitar in “Change Your Mind” and “Fantasies” brings the vocal performance to newfound heights, focusing on each heartfelt lyric and providing an intimate experience for listeners. “Silent Affection,” the album closer, stands out due to its stripped-back transformation. The upbeat energy in the studio version is toned down to reveal a more nuanced version of the track, showcasing the dynamic nature of Pacifica’s artistry.

This year, Pacifica is slated for their first Lollapalooza Argentina performance where fans will be lucky enough to hear these tracks and more with that unmatched live energy. In the meantime, with the release of Freak Scene: NAK Sessions, listeners can experience the raw, enchanting talent of the Pacifica girls at home.
