Michael Nau recently released his latest, full band album, ‘Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread’ which saw him revisiting some songs from a little way back. ‘On Ice‘ is an earworm of a song, blending familiarity with Nau’s quirky vocal. It comes out of a literal home recording session which saw Nau and the band taking over guitarist Benny Yurco’s one-bedroom apartment with drums and bass in the bedroom, the guitar amp in the bathroom, Nau’s vocals and piano in the living room, and a vibraphone in the kitchen. This was the first time Nau has been able to record all the music together in one place, and he says “it feels most like a band record than ever before”.
