RONiiA (pronounced Row-nee-a) is Nona Marie Invie (Dark Dark Dark, FUGITIVE), Mark McGee (Father You See Queen, Marijuana Deathsquads) and Fletcher Barnhill (Joint Custody, FUGITIVE). Together they produce a mysterious world full of departure, rejection, and love made from dark beats and scuffed up synths. Electronic music that is stripped of its gloss, as wildly innovative as it is original.

For years, Nona Marie Invie toured and recorded with her American folk band Dark Dark Dark, being praised for her “flexible, penetrating voice, shedding both light and shadow on the meaning of her lyrics” (NPR). In RONiiA, Nona explores a fantastic surrealism, resulting in an album that invokes isolation and devotion, to escape and to be found.

Nona’s dissonant, shadowy presence is enriched and fortified by McGee’s eerie production, a style he has been perfecting for years in bands like To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie and Marijuana Deathsquads. As a group, the three members of RONiiA create a world that is both gorgeous and intense, where your eyes are snails and the fish eat your skin. There is peace under water.

(8/10) “There are echoes here if vintage Spector, post-punk and trip-hop, but Roniia already have a strong sui generis aesthetic that shakes off any obvious ancestry” — Uncut Magazine

“Roniia’s self-titled debut is up to par; this is gothic music, full of glitchy noises off, and made eerier still by Invie’s dead-eyed vocals.”
— The Sunday Times

“[RONiiA] blends synthpop and indie rock together with menacing results.”
— Consequence Of Sound
