EVENT | Strength NIA live at Nerve Centre
The latest in a series of online gigs, Strength NIA perform live at Nerve Centre.
Strength NIA are an unorthodox pop band from Derry. Led by singer Rory Moore, they describe their music as ‘Werewolf pop’.
Strength NIA use thick bass lines, organ and beats to accompany the lyrical narratives of Moore’s voice. The resulting music nods to the past in a familiar way, but has a personality that is immediate, fierce and now.
Their first album, Northern Ireland Yes, was released in 2018 to critical acclaim. Strength NIA have been championed on BBC6 music by Gideon Coe, and they have received airtime on multiple stations across the UK and Ireland, including BBC Radio4, BBC Radio Foyle, BBC Radio Ulster, RTE 2FM, RTÉ An Taobh Tuathail, and Absolute Radio with Frank Skinner. They have also featured in Vice/NOISEY, Hot Press, The Thin Air and the Irish Mirror.
Strength NIA's second album, Ulster is Dance Master, was released in May 2021. In June the duo will be at the Nerve Centre for a special online performance.
The gig will be streamed on Facebook and YouTube on Friday, 11 June at 8pm. Sign up to our Live Music Mailing List to be sent a link when the set goes live.
