Grappling Hooks (2CD)
Expanded version of the debut album
Grappling Hooks, the debut album from North Atlantic Oscillation was released last year on Kscope. The album received massive critical acclaim, including being named as Zane Lowe's album of the week on his BBC Radio 1 show.
Further radio support followed including sessions on 6 Music, BBC Scotland and BBC Introducing.
The band are about to start work on their second album and this special 2 disc edition of Grappling Hooks collects a selection of remixes of tracks from the album along with tracks recorded for a BBC 6 Music session and the band's beautiful cover of the doo-wop classic I Only Have Eyes For You.
Following successful UK tours (as headliners and also supporting Porcupine Tree, Anathema, Engineers and more), NAO are just about to embark on their first European tour, supporting Blackfield.

CLASH MAGAZINE / OCT '14 Prog is a dirty word. But then, shouldn't all rock music be progressive? Who in their right mind would willingly make something which didn't break new ground, which didn't attempt something different? Edinburgh trio North Atlantic Oscillation don't hide away from their prog roots. Yet this isn't to peg the band as some bunch of Yes devotees - rather, the three piece focus on what could be achieved with bass, drums, guitar and a hefty dose of electronics. New album 'The Third Day' is a startling return. Packed to the gunnels with fresh ideas, North Atlantic Oscillation maintain a molten, fluid sense of what it means to be a rock band. Designed explicitly as an album, each track on 'The Third Day' segues immaculately into the next, with the band aiming to produce something with absolutely no dead space. As a result, each daring new diversion piles onto one another, with the overall effect being quite shattering.
SAND (2013) CD
Debut solo album from NAO's Sam Healy
Sand is the debut solo release/project from NAO's Sam Healy.
During the last few years North Atlantic Oscillation have been steadily building their fanbase and reputation. Well known fans such as Zane Lowe and Guy Garvey have been drawn to the band's unique combination of sonic complexity and melodic intrigue.
Sam Healy, NAO's frontman and songwriter, returns with Sand.
Written, performed and recorded throughout 2012 and 2013, the album allowed Sam to work in a different way.
"I wanted to try something that I could work on entirely alone, with no deadlines or schedules intruding on the process. It was an experiment to see if I could conceive and execute a whole record without any outside influence. I only told few people about it until it was almost complete. I had a sense after the release of Fog Electric that I should try something else before starting on a third NAO album, something with a different feel, a musical palate-cleanser."
This change in process has resulted in an album which, while still sure to appeal to fans of Healy's previous work, has a more intimate and personal feel, both sonically and thematically.
Melodic passages and conventional pop structures are framed by striking changes in dynamics, to create a dramatic sonic palette which ranges from the barely audible to the wildly loud and back again (often within the same track).

Fog Electric (1CD)
The second studio album from North Atlantic Oscillation
