The sleek, soulful track was written by NAWAS and produced by Grammy Producer of the Year nominee John Hill (Portugal, The Man, Demi Lovato)
“She Knows” is the first new music from NAWAS since the band released its debut EP Trouble last year, which followed in the wake of their well-received singles “Wrong,” “So Low,” “Make It Work,” and “Who Are You.”
“‘She Knows’ is a new direction for us as a band. After touring last year and receiving so much encouragement and support from fans and listeners, we were excited to get back in the studio and work with John Hill, who brought out new musical elements in us that fit our desires perfectly,” says front man Jake Nawas.
Brilliantly mashing up elements of electronic music, hip-hop, and R&B, NAWAS sound is built around Jake Nawas, shape-shifting vocals, Ben McDaniel’s crystalling guitar work, and Joey Gonzales powerful yet minimalist drumming. Bringing rule-breaking originality to their silken production, NAWAS push the limits of pop with daring and darkly charged lyrics that lend each track an unforgettable depth.
A video for “She Knows” will be released in the coming weeks, followed by more new music throughout the fall.
What critics are saying about NAWAS:
“‘So Low’ is beautifully produced with smooth beats and an R&B-esque tempo. The direct, contemplative lyrics are delivered in (Jake Nawas) bewitchingly androgynous falsetto” – FADER
“(NAWAS is) primed and ready to rattle speaker systems.” –EARMILK
“‘Wrong’ is 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.” –SPIN
“‘Who Are You’ is as inspired as it is excitingly new. Front-man Jake Nawas’ androgynous singing is on fire on this track, and the instrumentals backing him up are as epic as they are illustrious. ‘Who Are You’ is exactly what you’d want from a fun summer song.” –BAEBLE
