Things happened fast for London’s Neo Jessica Joshua once her group the Boxettes dissolved and she entered the alt-R&B vanguard under the moniker Nao. Her first two EPs, particularly 2015’s February 15, led to waves of acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic and, within a year, a co-writing credit on Ariana Grande’s “Be Alright.” Nao has since kept busy with more collaborations, even contributing to Nile Rodgers & Chic’s comeback album It’s About Time, and her own “wonky funk” sound, releasing her astrology-themed sophomore LP in October’s Saturn.
