The best kept secret in music


"Props for Recording Process"

It's nice to work with a good home grown band who are so passionate about what they do. I’ve done recordings for The Waifs, Alanis Morissette, Harry Connick Jr and Van Halen and I can honestly say that the work Nardo is doing is way up there – in fact, it’s better than most of what I have previously recorded. These guys are exceptionally talented. - Paul Pilsnenkis (Sound Engineer, Studio 301)

"Cd Review"

Nardo is a young 4 piece from Sydney and they have a very distinctive and funky style. Their mellow songs are very melodic, sweet and beautiful, but their louder songs like “No Sale” simply rock! - Chik Magazine

"Single Review"

Nardo have their act together - they know who they are, what they’re doing and how to do it. The boys are good: great players with nice production. - The Brag

"EP Launch live reveiw"

The Basement remains one of my all time favourite venues for live music. Every single headline act I've seen there has been impressive and memorable - including Nardo… The song writing, lyrics, and music were enthusiastic, appealing, and emotional; conveying opinionated messages around relationships, politics, and the environment

I agree with the other critiques I've read; Nardo are a good group of musicians and have great potential as a band. Without hesitation, I will go see them play at least one more time. - The Metro Gnome

"Morning Sun - Single Review"

With all the jaunty bounce and verve of a happy Tim Freedman, singer Sam Nardo leads his eponymous four piece through the inner city streets with an easy pop sensibility that should get plenty of Tripe J action at the very least in the title cut of this indie release. Things get decidedly more rock on their cover of Hendrix’s Freedom with Andy Scott cutting loose over a nicely ropey bass courtesy of Karl Oberg, underpinned by plenty of punch by drummer Evan Browett. Nardo belying any preconceptions of the term ‘singer songwriter’ conjures up in most minds, through he gets back to the mellow and solo acoustic strum with In Good Time, both these tracks recorded live at the basement last year. Diversity is the key. - Drum Media

Feeling a bit camera shy


In February 2005, four Sydney boys released their self-funded debut EP to an unprecedented response, and have been turning heads ever since. And, after playing a string of festival and club gigs up and down the east coast of Australia the punters still wanted more. How could the boys say no to that?

And how did the lads come together?

Sam and Karl met in high school where Sam bullied the younger Karl into working on his solo album. Ev and Andy also met in school, where they were both doing their best Jack Black impersonations teaching school kids to rock. When the two groups met up they instantly started breakdance fighting. But, when it quickly became evident that none of them were very good at that, they turned to music.

Have I seen you some place before?

After the band launched their debut EP to a packed audience at The Basement, they were asked back to appear for two more successful shows. Since then they have enjoyed a hectic playing schedule headlining venues including The Vanguard, The Brass Monkey, Manly Fishos, Carringbah Bizzos, The Zoo (Brisbane) and also appearing at The Great Escape, Peats Ridge, Woodstock and Shoreshocked Festivals. Always a hard-working live band visit to find out where they are playing next.

What have you done for me lately?

In late 2004 without the support of a record label, a manager, a publicist or even someone to give them lunch money, Nardo scraped together the funds to record their debut EP, No Sale. The result of this was unprecedented. The record achieved airplay on local and national radio (FBI, JJJ), appearances on numerous DVD’s (Australian Surfing Life, Tracks and CHIK) and clothing sponsorships (Rhythm and Cult). On top of all this, Nardo’s track, No Sale was featured on a Billabong promotional video being screened on MTV and MTV Asia, giving Nardo both national and international exposure.

Plan of attack – the new single!

In 2006 the boys are working towards completing a full-length album and will continue onwards and upwards from there. The first single from the Album Morning Sun (out through MGM) was launched on March 2nd at the Vanguard in Newtown, Sydney. Internationally, the lads are currently being distributed through selected surf shops in Argentina. But, never the type to sit back and wait, Nardo are continuing to work hard and improve, both on and off the stage, in what promises to be a massive year for Nardo.
