  • Description

    Nao follows up the infectious 'So Good', with her new EP "February 15" via Dummy Records. Continuing the theme of her first EP NAO combines cutting edge groove-led production with classic RnB/soul melodies but February 15 feels like a step up for the native Londoner. The synths and electronic drums remain but guitars and live bass play a bigger role on this record; "I'm a big fan of live instrumentation. It's the same as a voice to me, it captures emotion and an energy totally unique to your song. The likes of Prince & Chaka Khan are amazing for that."  With no record deal and no marketing budget, the success of NAO's debut EP came as quite a shock. Two days after she uploaded the title track to Soundcloud 'So Good' found its way to Zane Lowe, which started a chain of events that would shape the year for NAO. Following his "Next Hype" play the track started to gain a momentum and life of its own - leading to a #1 on HypeMachine, #4 on the iTunes electronic chart, a BBC 1XTRA playlist and 1.5 million plays on Soundcloud. She then went on to sell out her first two London shows in a matter of days and was asked to join Little Dragon on their 22-date European tour.
