Song of the Day – Girlfriend


When Nao began studying vocal jazz at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, I don’t imagine her ten year plan included reaching the levels of success she has done so quickly. Having spent some time familiarising herself with the art of performance by singing back-up (most notably for Kwabs), she decided to take the plunge and go solo in 2014. The leap of faith paid off; landing her MOBO and Brit nominations amongst a wealth of festival appearances. Her single “Girlfriend” excellently showcases the “wonky funk” she and her exquisite synths are known for.
