Default Pnau

Pnau is an Australian dance music duo made up of Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes. The duo released their debut album Sambanova in 1999 under the Peking Duck label. Due to poor timing, the album was pulled from record stores a week before they won an ARIA Award for Best Dance Release. Warner Music Australasia re-released it in 2000, then released Need Your Lovin’ Baby in 2001. After releasing the single “Follow Me” in 2002, the album charted higher than their previous albums in both the Australian ARIAnet Singles and Albums Charts. Pnau charted even higher with the single “Una Noche (Get Up)” (2003). Their sophomore album is Again.

Pnau’s third album is on the way through Ministry of Sound Australia.

I really like their latest album (I'm pretty sure it's selftitled). Listen to With you forever. The vocals aren't like that throughout the album but it has plenty more tunes to keep you groovin'. I haven't heard their previous albums yet but I hear they're pretty fun, although they have less vocals. So check it. - P N A U - SYDNEY, AU -

Pnau - Baby

Pnau - Journey Agent

Very different, loungey track from a previous album I presume.

Creativity is pretty important with so many people able to record albums with nothing more than a decent piece of software and a microphone plugged into their computer, and there's enough originality here to give Timbaland a few more hit singles. The vocal work keeps an edgy enough sound to make sure you won't be hearing this in trendy mall clothing stores, but the purely instrumental pieces had intros that had me wishing they would cut the foreplay and give me something to move to. Worth the time to find and listen to? Definitely. Worth your money? Maybe, but I wasn't sold on first listen.

Nice to hear a new name for once.Not entirely original but it had character.
