Brighton folk music / electronic duo Nierra Creek will be releasing their debut single Born a Child this Friday.
Bursting with life, grit and passion, it’s the first taste of what’s to come from the multi-faceted band.
Demonstrating an explosive range of energy on ‘Born A Child’, Nierra Creek’s distinctively-intimate lyricism, framed against left field production, is both magnetic and hypnotic. Speaking about the new track front-man Ryan Deag says “As children it is mind blowing how little we are taught about emotional imbalance. Even within times like these, people stay silent. But for people being born today, I hope it’s just a generational thing. If I have children I want them to see me cry, I want to ask them for help and to feel strength in doing so”.
“‘I will die a child, don’t forget, soft at the heart, tender and red’ this lyric sums it up. I have become more aware that every movement I make is a gesture from my childhood. I realise that I won’t ever become an “adult”. Nobody does. We are all growing from the moment we arrive into this world, until the moment we exit. Constantly figuring out who we are and how we navigate this fucked up world.”
Nierra Creek consists of Somerset songwriter Ryan Deag and Swiss producer Sebastian Müller. Taking sonic influence from indie folk artists Bon Iver to King Krule, to production heavy artists James Blake and Oneohtrix Point Never, the duo are forging their own unique sound which transcends genre.
The duo have been busy during lockdown, playing a sold out show at The Amersham Arms in London in October, live-streaming several home concerts for JOY and have already been featured in Undercurrent Magazine and live on air at Platform B radio. They supported Communion favourites MarthaGunn last year in London and there’s a socially-distanced tour on the horizon in 2021.
The track will be going live Friday morning to ease us all into the weekend in lovely fashion, check their socials and this very Undercurrent website for details.
