Nérija share new track Last Straw

As they edge closer to the release of their debut album, Blume, on 2nd August, Nérija are extremely happy to share the new track, “Last Straw”.

The new track is one of the more dancefloor ready moments on Blume, capturing some of the best aspects Nérija’s live sets whilst adding some indefinable studio magic, perfectly exemplifying the collaborative nature of the band.

In addition to the new track, Nérija have announced a new London date for October 15th at OMEARA. Links to tickets can be found below. 


Nérija are the septet of contemporary jazz luminaries, 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). Rooted in friendship, Nérija is a collective whose breakneck shifts in tempo and style rely on a deep understanding of mood, temperament and expression, a solid show of trust that extends beyond the usual bonds between musicians.

Blume is a truly breath-taking collection of compositions that perfectly encapsulates everything Nérija; vibrant, engaging, infectious and truly current. For just over an hour, they take us on a sprawling wonderful journey, arriving at what is a majestic body of work; their personal and collective experiences and inspirations over the last half decade or so.
