NAWAS PREMIERES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE, “WRONG,” TODAY
BAND CURRENTLY AT WORK ON DEBUT EP FOR HARVEST RECORDS
November 17th, 2016 — (Hollywood, CA) — Electronic-pop/R&B trio NAWAS premiere the video for their new single, “Wrong,” today. The frenetic, kaleidoscopic clip was directed by Steven Alan, (who also directed the video for their track “So Low,”) and was shot on location in Nashville, where NAWAS are based. Watch it HERE.
“We knew it would be important to convey the energy of the music behind the “Wrong” video, says frontman Jake Nawas. “Steven Alan brought forward the idea of that element existing within a very confined and simple setting, which worked out very well. It makes these things easy when you work with someone as talented as Steven.”
“Wrong,” which was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Sainte, is already earning positive praise from various media outlets, including Spin who called it “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,” and Earmilk, who called it “primed and ready to rattle speaker systems” and praised its “emotionally laced lyrics.”
Originally from Louisiana, NAWAS is now based in Nashville, where vocalist and songwriter Jake Nawas, guitarist Ben McDaniel, and drummer Joey Gonzales frequently collaborate with producer Sainte and songwriter Luke Foley. The band’s timeless sound is influenced by the likes of Kanye West, Prince, D’Angelo, and Justin Timberlake, with a foundation that celebrates both classic songwriting and innovative production. Nawas’ smooth, androgynous R&B vocals, rich instrumentals, and tightly woven concept-based lyrics have found fans among tastemakers and music lovers alike. The band have hit #1 on Hype Machine and is rapidly approaching one million streams combined. They’ve also received airplay on Beats 1 and inclusion in Spotify’s most coveted playlists, including New Music Friday, Weekly Buzz, Discover Weekly, and Fresh Finds. NAWAS is currently at work on their debut EP for Harvest Records.
