|NORTH ATLANTIC OSCILLATION FOG ELECTRIC Limited Vinyl LP
Fog Electric is the follow-up to Grappling Hooks, the band's debut which received massive critical acclaim when it was released in 2010. This praise included being named as Zane Lowe’s album of the week on his BBC Radio 1 show and further radio support followed including sessions on 6 Music, BBC Scotland and BBC Introducing.
NAO are the Scottish based trio of Sam Healy (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, synths, sax, percussion), Ben Martin (drums, percussion, programming) and Chris Howard (bass, synth bass, vocals). They describe themselves as playing their instruments within a computerised wall of sound and they have been labelled prog-pop and electro-rock, but really they just make music. The music has soaring harmonies and loud guitars and dreamy synths and heavy drums and strange effects and unexpected changes-of-mind.
Fog Electric has been recorded and produced by Tony Doogan (Super Furry Animals, Mogwai, Teenage Fanclub, Belle & Sebastian) and looks set to lift the band to even higher levels.
