Nérija sign to Domino Records & share a remixed version of their debut EP

Twistedsoul - NÉRIJA

Early this week, Domino announced they had  signed Nérija; the London-based jazz septet composed of 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).

We’ve been big fans of the band since hearing their debut NÉRIJA EP back in 2016, and we’re thrilled that the label is revitalising the release.

Combining jazz with hip-hop grooves, Afrobeat rhythms and incredible energy this is a must listen.

The 5-track EP was initially composed, recorded and self-released after the groups’ meetings and collaborations via London’s Tomorrow’s Warriors. The re-release is re-mixed by Kwes and remastered by Chris Potter at Electric.

The EP will also receive its first vinyl release on March 22nd. Pre-order the heavyweight 12” vinyl and CD here.

Nérija will play a headline show at London venue Oslo on March 26th – grab a ticket here.

Get into the EP below and expect more brilliance from one of the most exciting new prospects in jazz.
