MusicWeek recently reached out to CLASH‘s online editor, Robin Murray, to find out what he’s been listening to. Turns out, it’s Nérija. According to Murray, “The current wave of energy within UK jazz has produced all manner of superb artists, blending and bending forms as they see fit. Nérija share in this spirit, with a Harlem Globetrotters-style line-up of phenomenally gifted technicians who push each other into a fresh, vivid, and entirely unique space. The septet’s debut album Blume is out now on Domino, and it was recorded on board a floating studio by the docks at the Isle Of Dogs. As a result, it’s a deeply ‘London’ experience: there’s synthesis, the embrace of individual voices within a shared experience and heavily rhythmic push and pull.”
