“It was actually quite an organic process,” Nadia explains to theFashionSpot. “I made a couple of appearances in the last season and the spot opened up, and of course the girls were thrilled to have me,” she laughs.

This month marks exactly nine years since beautiful-headcase Marissa Cooper died in that fateful car crash courtesy of noted bad-boy Volchock, and triple j is commemorating the prime character’s death, and essentially the death of The O.C (let’s not pretend Season Four did anything for us), by celebrating the show’s significance as a portal for music discovery at the time.
We’re talking Death Cab For Cutie, The Killers, Modest Mouse and Imogen Heap, plus Aussie acts like Jet, Howling Bells and Youth Group, who rose to the forefront of public consciousness, thanks in part to the show. (more…)
