Of late, Nowadays Records have been signing up a string of hot properties. Last Thursday, BRNFKD slammed their epic upcoming masterpiece, Shining here on NEW LEASE MUSIC. Now it’s French trio UNNO‘s turn to show what they’re made of…
The group’s name, UNNO – which stands for ‘the UNexpected NOte’ – exemplifies the group’s individual approach to creating music and this is definitely reflected their track Blue Leaf. Produced by fellow Nowadays signees BRNFKD, the four-minute production showcases the group’s distinctive style; constantly prompting the listener to expect the unexpected with dreamlike synths, droning bass and erratic percussion. With hugely varied influences, the trio display an insolent freedom in the way they create their music.
Since forming in 2011, UNNO – consisting of Awir Leon, J.Kid and Tismé, who are all members of the prolific Dunkirk-based Jayfly collective – have been making a name for themselves in the French music scene. Following their first ever live performance on a French TV show, the group have since been delivering unforgettable performances bursting with an energy that is both dreamy and explosive, which led to them being named ‘The Discovery of Printemps de Bourges’.
Blue Leaf is coming from their EP, As We Land (Take Off Edition)…so expect the unexpected and have a listen to the single.
