Australian duo NAATIONS have released their mesmerising new single ‘Touch Me’, with the powerful production out now via First Access Records.
NAATIONS, made up of long-time friends Nicky Night Time and Nat Dunn, have unveiled the compelling floor filler, sampling DJ Rui Da Silva’s iconic production of the same name. “We love the original so much and we felt like we could do a version with our own vibe on it, so we remade it …” says the duo. “We were never into covering tracks really but when we were working on it for the fifty shades movie it just made sense that we were gonna actually make it into a track that we can play live and release!”
The single precedes the duo’s headline show at Camden Assembly on 28th March, as well as their performance at London’s Brixton Academy on 31st March, where they will be supporting Gorgon City, having teamed up with the pair on the 2017 summer anthem ‘Real Life’, now sitting on over 27 million Spotify streams.
Following up their ‘Real Life’ success with their own single ‘Want Me More’, the former propelled itself into the Top 20 UK Shazam Dance Chart following a wave of huge support from BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra, with plays from Pete Tong, Danny Howard and Mistajam. The track also received airing across Kiss FM and Kiss Fresh, dominating UK radio play nationwide.
Having previously worked as separate acts before forming NAATIONS, Nicky has teamed up with the likes of The Klaxons, as well as gaining a coveted ARIA Award nomination for his track ‘Everybody Together’. Meanwhile, Nat recently co-wrote Marshmello & Anne-Marie’s hit single ‘FRIENDS’. Released last month, the track has amassed 70 million streams on Spotify alone and peaked in several singles charts worldwide, including the Top 10 of the UK Official Charts.
‘Touch Me’ is a superb combination of Nicky’s cleverly-crafted production skills and Nat’s impressive vocal prowess. With 2018 promising to become the biggest year in the pair’s career so far, it’s certain that ‘Touch Me’ will add to the excitement already surrounding NAATIONS.
