NEW MUSIC \\ The much awaited return of Nérija: Check out new single ‘Riverfest’

14th June 2019
Seven piece band Nérija have returned with their first new music since their self-titled 2016 EP.

Returning with joyous single ‘Riverfest’, the much-celebrated Nérija are back, not just with a brand new track but news of a new album, via Domino. 

Nérija is Nubya Garcia (tenor saxophone), Sheila Maurice-Grey (trumpet), Cassie Kinoshi (alto saxophone), Rosie Turton (trombone), Shirley Tetteh (guitar), Lizy Exell (drums) and Rio Kai (bass).

‘Riverfest’ is a celebratory tune, dulcet and bouncing with much of the band playing in unison throughout. Nérija have also announced their debut album ‘Blume’, a ten track offering which is released on 2 August. Recorded in the legendary Soup Studios, it was produced by Kwes (Solange, Kelela, Loyle Carner, Tirzah)

Check out the single below and pre-order ‘Blume’ on Bandcamp.
