Sand – Sam Healy from North Atlantic Oscillation – releases his second solo album ‘A Sleeper, Just Awake’.

The 9 tracks see Healy on what he describes as a “musical holiday” which began after competing work on NAO’s ‘The Third Day’ in 2014. The home-produced effort has also seen him hone up on his own production skills, in preparation for his band’s third full-length release.

It follows up 2013’s self-titled debut, but unlike that release, and NAO’s ‘band’ material, is released via the Vineland label. A North Atlantic Oscillation ‘best of’ is also due for release in the near future.
