NAWAS Release New Track: “She Knows”

Just today, Louisiana-bred, Nashville-based trio NAWAS release a new track “She Knows” vial all digital partners. It is available to stream and download HERE.

The sleek, soulful track was written by NAWAS and produced by Grammy Producer of the Year nominee John Hill (Portugal, The Man, Demi Lovato)

“She Knows” is the first new music from NAWAS since the band released its debut EP Trouble last year, which followed in the wake of their well-received singles “Wrong,” “So Low,” “Make It Work,” and “Who Are You.”

“‘She Knows’ is a new direction for us as a band. After touring last year and receiving so much encouragement and support from fans and listeners, we were excited to get back in the studio and work with John Hill, who brought out new musical elements in us that fit our desires perfectly,” says front man Jake Nawas.

Brilliantly mashing up elements of electronic music, hip-hop, and R&B, NAWAS sound is built around Jake Nawas, shape-shifting vocals, Ben McDaniel’s crystalling guitar work, and Joey Gonzales powerful yet minimalist drumming. Bringing rule-breaking originality to their silken production, NAWAS push the limits of pop with daring and darkly charged lyrics that lend each track an unforgettable depth.

A video for “She Knows” will be released in the coming weeks, followed by more new music throughout the fall.

What critics are saying about NAWAS:

“‘So Low’ is beautifully produced with smooth beats and an R&B-esque tempo. The direct, contemplative lyrics are delivered in (Jake Nawas) bewitchingly androgynous falsetto”FADER

“(NAWAS is) primed and ready to rattle speaker systems.”EARMILK

“‘Wrong’ is a dense, sparkly track featuring heavy bass and fluid guitar riffs that find the medium & between Prince’s androgynous melodies and Calvin Harris’ euphoric bangers.”SPIN

“‘Who Are You’ is as inspired as it is excitingly new. Front-man Jake Nawas’ androgynous singing is on fire on this track, and the instrumentals backing him up are as epic as they are illustrious. ‘Who Are You’ is exactly what you’d want from a fun summer song.”BAEBLE

NUE Drops EP “U Met Me At A Strange Time”

Toronto native, NUE releases his latest EP, U Met Me At A Strange Time.

NUE made waves in 2017 with his critically-acclaimed mixtape, Iroquois. Now the anime illustrator is back with a 10-track project that reflects on the many losses he experienced this year. The lost of his close friend, Kosi Modekwe (Koba Prime), who died alongside Drake affiliate, Smoke Dawg and the lengthy prison sentences that have plagued his friendships and family.

Understanding that it’s strange timing for love interests and music lovers to meet him, NUE welcomes everyone into his narcotized world of pain, careless partying, and self reflection.

NUE is currently on a Canadian tour with Grammy-nominated hitmaker, Fetty Wap. Earlier this year, he released the single “Nightfall,” which premiered on Noisey, who referred to the record as “nasally harmonies reminiscent of “Lollipop”-era Lil Wayne.” Additionally, he released “Nightfall’s” music video and remix with Toronto’s Pressa. Growing up in a Jamaican household in Scarborough, NUE developed a great a love for anime and basketball. After encouragement from his family, he began recording music in his brother’s basement. NUE’s unique sound and clever storytelling has garnered the attention of HypebeastPAPERNoiseyComplexThe FaderPigeons and PlanesEarmilkDirty Glove Bastard, Rap RadarHot New Hip-HopHip-Hop DX, and more.

WIINSTON releases video for LALA

Dark yet humorous, WIINSTON’s official video for Lala extends the single’s commentary on social dynamics in Los Angeles. Alexander Andersen, who plays Ivar the Boneless in the hit HISTORY drama Vikings, is cast as a megalomaniac TV host who continually sabotages his interviews and violates the personal boundaries of his guests in an effort to assuage his feelings of inferiority and need for recognition.

His guests include WIINSTON, an author (played by Julie Christiansen) and an actor making a comeback (played by Daniel Wagner). Producer/songwriter Alfred Thomas and singer/songwriter Daniel Richards, the two longtime friends behind WIINSTON, once again partnered with directors Joachim Morre and Sren Kahr and producer Christian Lenhart, who helmed videos for the singles Rosa, Canada, and Mio. View Lala HERE and download/stream the single HERE.

Variance Magazine proclaimed Lala addictive and noted, It’s brimming with sunny vibes, effortlessly capturing the lure of L.A. nights, poolside romance and fast flings. VENTS Magazine hailed it as another certified slow-burning banger. Aupium observed, Lala is about the glorious & soul-crushing narcissism of Lalaland. Hillydilly said, “The Danish duo won us over with their silky soundscapes and emotional songwriting, yet, now, they’re revealing a more upbeat side of their sound with Lala.”

WIINSTON’s three previous singles: Rosa, Canada, and Mio have nearly four million streams combined on Spotify. The duo made its Capitol Records debut in February 2018 with Rosa. Earmilk praised the song and accompanying video as full of modern soul and predicted, The Danish group are slated for a massive breakout in the States.

The hypnotic Canada landed on Spotify’s tastemaker playlist Weekly Buzz soon after its release and also appeared on multiple New Music Friday playlists. The Line Of Best Fit hailed it as an expertly crafted R&B track taking cues from the pop world with its infectious hook. Mio, a hip-hop inspired song with a dreamy melody, prompted Clash Magazine to observe, Bristling with flouro-soaked tones, the sheer ambition is something to behold. All three tracks were accompanied by videos created by WIINSTON and their collaborators, which showcase their image-driven artistry

WIINSTON X LALA

WIINSTON captures the seductive power of L.A. nights on the sparkling new single, Lala, released today by Capitol Records. The city itself emerges as a character on the rhythmic track, which pulses with an indelible, lilting refrain. Lala is now available for download/streaming HERE. The animated visualizer can be seen HERE.

Producer/songwriter Alfred Thomas and singer/songwriter Daniel Richards & the two longtime friends behind WIINSTON & write, record and produce most of their songs alone in Thomas’ one-room apartment.

WIINSTON says, We paint the picture with feelings and moods and just play around until we like it. It all comes to us very intuitively and fast, and the lyrics are shaped as pictures before they are written down.

Fabich x A-Minor – Naked Lines (Ft. Aaron Pfeiffer)

Released 12th January

LONDON FOSTERS FEARLESS NEW SINGLE FROM RECORD PRODUCER FABICH

“[Fabich’s] appeal is much more wide reaching than you might think, with ‘80s, ‘90s and contemporary influences.EARMILK

“Fabich has been on a roll this year.” CAVEMAN SOUND

Fabich has had a reel of successes in his career. Having previously made music at Bob Marley’s house, and achieving US chart success as a producer for platinum-selling R&B and soul singer-songwriter Lyfe Jennings and Missy Elliott collaborator, Trina. Now, alongside London producer A-Minor and vocalist Aaron Pfeiffer, we hear the opening chapter of an unfolding story… the first single Naked Lines.

After Fabich’s move to London he felt the overwhelming creative force of the city. Totally inspired, recent single Hold On was born. Accompanied by a VMA nominated video that held surprising humorous twists, delicately reflecting Fabich’s multi-faceted personality. As characterful as ever, this humble record producer finds inspiration in equal measure within art, design and music.

A-Minor is the perfect partner in crime for this release, bringing his trademark drum patterns and seriously soulful melodies. Also recognised for remixes on Raleigh Ritchie, Yousef and Bipolar Sunshine’s work, his own Ministry of Sound release Be Mine shows serious flare by hitting 800,000 plays on youtube alone. After making the epic move from the USA to Berlin, vocalist Aaron began to discover himself sexually and mentally. Unusually and uncharacteristically open, a new place, new scenery and a new atmosphere allows Aaron and this song the space it truly needs.

Fabich’s passion for all things creative doesn’t shy away from an unspoken and uncontrollable thirst in this emotionally charged new release. We look forward to Fabich’s subtle and refreshing tunes to settle us into the utterly altruistic journey that Naked Lines has invited us on.
