NAO – Nostalgia

NAO is serving up something new yet familiar. In her new single “Nostalgia” her words soar over thumping synths and a fast paced drum kit. But I can’t help but hear some Michael Jackson or Madonna in the bouncy guitar riff. I’m seduced by the same accoutrements of “Beat It” or “Material Girl.” The jagged funk vibe almost feels anachronistic, and yet that makes it all the more alluring.
