Nané: “Blue Velvet”

By: Jack Anderson

We’ve been keeping a watchful eye on Nané since their debut single “Always On My Mind” earned a heavy rotation spot on our airwaves late last Fall (and deservedly so). The group was born on the UT campus back in 2016 when singer Daniel Sahad first linked up with guitarist Ian Green, and soon Nané was having no problems selling out venues like Stay Gold, mesmerizing thousand-person crowds, and opening for Black Pumas and Bob Schneider.

A full record has yet to be announced, but last Friday Nané shared their fifth single, featuring an ensemble cast of credits: production by Grammy-winner John Speice IV, mixing by Chris “Frenchie” Smith, mastering by Cacophony’s Erik Wofford, and engineering from Adrian Quesada. They’ve reclaimed a Roy Orbison title just for themselves for a confidence booster and a friendly reminder not to take everything so seriously accept the goofiness in life’s banality even down to your individual core on “Blue Velvet”!
