NVO Puts Fresh Edge On Disco With “Limitless” And “Shift Me”
Posted by VMan on March 2, 2017
Starting in 2010, NVO, has been dominating the scene with consistent music created with an array of guitars, bass, drums, synthesizers and anything else they can pick up to bring us the funk. Their music is refreshing, as they have taken a different approach to electronic music using a fusion of bass heavy rock, sci-funk, and rave hop. If I were to summarize the 4-member band I would say they are a cross between MSTRKRAFT and a mild Bloody Beetroots. They bring back the grooviness but with a pinch of attitude as their unique live electronic style sound has gotten them supporting slots for the likes of MSTRKRFT, Goldfish, Particle, The New Deal, Lotus, Conspirator and Bernie Worell. Along with that they’ve had their music placed in Hulu’s show “Resident Advisors” and if you’ve ever been to the San Fransisco Giants stadium then you’ve most definitely heard their music.
Today NVO brings us their new EP The Signal. This perfectly conveys their skills with a combination of live instruments and electronic sounds. Two songs in particular capture the essence that make NVO unique, “Limitless” and “Shift Me (Ft Eko Zu)”. “Limitless” fuses old-school electronic elements with a modern feel, featuring anthemic and melodic vocals, strong arrangement, and a splash of arpeggios to give it a trippy effect. As the title gives away “Shift Me (Ft Eko Zu)” features a bay area / LA-based group on the release that we have posted on FNT before, which certainly influenced the funky angle and heart-warming female vocal accompaniment. Both singles have a nu-disco vibe at their core and carry an uplifting vibe throughout.
