NKOS have released the video for their debut single, “Little Miss Numb”, a spine tingling electronic music track fans of new-wave, post-punk, trip-hop, electro and anything in-between.
The band, featuring the dark and seductive vocals of singer/songwriter Nancy Natali was discovered by Beatbuzz Records at an Italian ‘party after the after-party’. The label sought, chased and coveted the act ever since. Now Beatbuzz Records and NKOS are ready to share their sound.
On the single “Little Miss Numb”, NKOs elaborate:
“Our main inspiration has always been Eighties and Nineties new wave and English trip-hop,” say NKOS. “Our sound is a development of that stuff with modern electronics. NKOS is multifaceted because it easily goes from dark to light and it does so without fear.”
Little Miss Numb was mixed and mastered by “Icio” Maurizio Baggio (The Soft Moon; Boy Harsher), with additional production by Jagz Kooner (Massive Attack, Primal Scream).

Initially a pan-national studio-based project, NKOS has evolved into a full band, one set to thrill on stages around the world. Brought together by friendship, the internet and sometimes sheer luck, NKOS comprise four artists from very different backgrounds – and locations – who share a love of deep, edgy electronica.
Singer/songwriter Nancy Natali was born in Australia but grew up in Geneva and Rome, her beautiful vocals honed in bands of indie/alternative leanings. Producer Flavio Manieri perfected his electronic house and pop sonics, filtered through a love for the Cocteau Twins and Portishead, between Poland and Italy, and it was in Rimini that he met renowned producer and DJ Chris Shape, whose studio skills have enhanced many dance-music anthems as well as the acid techno of Franz and Shape. Stoner-psych-rock guitarist Marcus Billeri, meanwhile, lives in Paris.
Live concerts and details on the release of NKO’s debut LP are forthcoming later this year.
