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

FEATURED ON DRAKE’S SONG AND VIDEO FOR IN MY FEELINGS

“A synthesis of perspective reminiscent of Run-DMC and Salt-N-Pepa” – PITCHFORK

“Raunchy, in-your-face songs for the independent women of the world.” – XXL

“The heist-level bars feel like something rap has been missing for the better part of a decade.” – NOISEY

ABOUT ARIANA GRANDE
With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. At age 24 she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With 2016’s critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman, Grande both boldly defies expectation and reveals the full force of her voice (recently hailed as an “extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument” upon Grande’s appearance on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list).

Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits “Problem” and “Bang Bang” (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of Dangerous Woman. With People noting that the album “celebrates feminine might,” Entertainment Weekly praised Grande for “having something meaningful to say with that jaw-dropping voice — one of the most exquisite in pop today.” Grande wrapped up her widely lauded Dangerous Woman Tour in support of the album last year, performing 85 arena shows worldwide.

Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize).

Ariana’s recent single “No Tears Left To Cry” debuted at #1 on iTunes in 88 countries worldwide and began the next era for her upcoming fourth full length studio album Sweetener. With the release of “Not Tears Left To Cry” she became the first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first four albums debut on the Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. This year she has graced the prestigious magazine covers of TIME’s Next Generation Leaders, FADER, and British Vogue. The highly anticipated album, Sweetener, will be released Summer 2018.

DUKE DUMONT OFFICIAL “INHALE” VIDEO IS OUT!

DUKE DUMONT DELIVERS OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “INHALE”
View Here:

Buy / Stream “Inhale” Here:
https://DukeDumont.lnk.to/inhalesingle

GRAMMY-nominated producer Duke Dumont has unveiled his wildly quirky official video for “Inhale,” his single with rising UK talent Ebenezer. View the official video HERE. “Inhale” is available for streaming and purchase HERE via Astralwerks.

Telling the tale of Robert Lloyd’s famous poetic line, slow & steady wins the race, the “Inhale” video showcases the story of a sloth who manages to escape to the office elevator first on a Friday evening, amid the chaotic and violent scenes that break out in the workplace as the clock hits 5pm. The themes of relaxation and living a stress-free sloth-like life transpire through Duke’s lusciously down-tempo melodies on the record, which follows his “For Club Play Only” EP, and Gorgon City collaboration “Real Life”- a hugely popular anthem of the 2017 Ibiza season.

Laced with the slick vocals of critically acclaimed, rising star Ebenezer, “Inhale” relies on a funky-groove led bassline, and electronica synths that give the track a summery feel, and look set to follow in the footsteps of Duke’s previous two UK #1 hits “Need U (100%)” and “I Got U.”

A true global superstar, Duke Dumont has amassed over 1 BILLION combined streams across his flurry of releases to date, and continues to tour worldwide. With a number of shows already locked in for 2018, the Brit will travel to Las Vegas for residencies at Wynn and Daylight, as well as headlining festival slots all round Europe, Australia, San Diego, Chicago, and many more.

Having recently released his Bad Romantic 9-track EP, Hommerton-born Ebenezer has previously worked with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih and Craig David and gained support from the likes of Noisey, FADER, and Hunger. Ebenezer is swiftly gaining reputation as one of London’s hottest exports.

Preceding the release of Duke Dumont’s highly anticipated album, “Inhale” has already racked up nearly 4 million Spotify streams since release, with the official video out now!

MNEK’S SINGLE ‘TOUNGE’

MNEK’S NEW SINGLE, TONGUE IS OUT NOW

23-Year-Old U.K. Artist Has Racked Up A Cumulative One Billion Streams

Across His Own Releases And Numerous Collaborations

MNEK’s new single, Tongue, is now available for download and streaming HERE. Sounding like Bobby Brown’s creative peak reinterpreted through the technicolor glow and wit of Rupaul’s Drag Race Tongue is the mark of MNEK planting his own flag firmly in the sand as an important artist to watch. The track received its world premiere last night on the BBC’s Radio 1 as Annie Macs Hottest Record.

‘Tongue’ is a highly-sexed electronic banger about something really quite sweet, falling in love and being too nervous to say it out loud, said FADER, which premiered the lyric video. View the video HERE. Check out MNEK’S Facebook to see the new 3D interactive model for Tongue; the first one used by a music artist globally on the platform.

The U.K. artist signed his first publishing deal at age 14. At 23, MNEK now has one billion streams to his name, between his early material and wider collaborations. Capitol Records will release his solo debut album later this year.

NPR Music observed, While MNEK’s a triple threat [singer/songwriter/producer], it’s his voice that locks you in Never Forget You, his duet with Zara Larsson, topped Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and has been certified 3x Platinum in the U.S. The list of artists MNEK has written and produced for includes: Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, Little Mix, Madonna, Diplo, Rudimental, Julia Michaels and Stormzy to name but a few.
