Vákoum is an Israeli & Mexican experimental pop duo founded in NYC in 2014 by instrumentalists, composers and producers, Natalia and Kelli Rudick-Padilla. Their humble 20 year foundation of virtuosic guitar playing, multi effect processing and synthesis, brought them together at “The End” —Greenpoint’s hub for creatives in Brooklyn during a guitar clinic. Since then their craft has evolved through sub-conscious intuition, creating a sonic mirror that redefines a system of music as an emotive dialogue that was written for each other and accentuated by each other, instilling a deeper connection to self and a shared relationship.
The duo’s wide palette of rhythmic, textural and tonal complexity delivers an anxious beauty of mood swings that shape a profound mindset. The unexpected transitions described through carefully selected sonic processing are met with effected guitars, a blend of strong acoustic and original electronic drum beats.
Vákoum’s unconventional approach to composition delivers a tacit-like experience spanning everything from global & personal angst to existential wonder and the love for the human connection through music.
The duo released a special edition of their debut EP, Home For Home in 2017 shortly after joining in support of The Album Leaf’s west coast tour. Vákoum have finalized their first full length album in their home studio which is due to be released.
