    label: full time hobby

    Some Twist is the follow up to 2016’s Mowing. Michael has received extensive BBC radio play and been selected as a “6 Music Recommends” pick. One-off single “Love Survive” cracked the top 50 on Spotify's Global Viral Chart and Elton John has played Nau on his Beats1 show. The first single from Some Twist is “Good Thing”. Bright piano and fingerpicked guitar weave together throughout the song with a chorus that swells with feedback fuzz and crashing percussion. Nau’s ever-present sense of humour, one of the hallmarks of his songwriting, gives the song a wry sense of purpose amidst its reflection. “His masterful instinct for arrangement, along with his reedy voice, earns Nau a place in the rock’n’roll underdogs’ Hall of Fame.” - Pitchfork. "A beguiling debut - a warm bath of baroque pop, country and Hazlewood-like balladry" - Uncut. “Recalls cadences of 1970s Ned Doheny and solo David Byrne, with a hint of Brian Wilson” - The Fader. "A breezy, laid-back union between country, folk, and classic pop" The Line of Best Fit. "Intimate and inviting" Q. Tracklisting
