There’s alot of love for Nao and that’s not come from nothing, after two EP’s, Nao has no bad blood from her fans, she’s just gathered together a whole lot more anticipation for her forthcoming debut album release.
Kicking off with her new single ‘Bad Blood’, released a matter of hours ago it’s already had over 20K plays on SoundCloud and is addictive indeed. Nao’s collaborations with Disclosure and Mura Masa, have marked her out as one of the U.K’s most coveted and exciting singers and that’s coming from alot of her peers including Goldlink.
On ‘Bad Blood’ she’s yearning but somehow with that prince-esque guitar riff it leaves us with a moody but almost sexy undercurrent giving rise to her crisply pitched vocals. Nao’s a distinctive singer one who’s style is entirely her own, where only she can deliver a lyric like “Don’t tell me I’m cuckoo” and make it sound pitch perfect with no refraining.
Check out ‘Bad Blood’, her albums not due till 2016 but in the meantime if you haven’t already, go see the Mobo nominated newcomer on her live on her forthcoming U.K tour dates.
