Nieves are back and touring in support of their new album "Exist and Expire". Hailing from Glasgow, the band are following in the footsteps of the likes of Admiral Fallow and Frightened Rabbit - but standing out on their own with their piano led alt-folk.
We are very excited to share with you our brand new song ‘Black Tie’. The track will be made available for free from this afternoon on Soundcloud and will be released across all digital platforms on 12 June.
‘Black Tie’ is a precursor for our forthcoming self-released second EP, 'Matriarch’, with a Scottish tour to be announced soon, following our performances at Loopallu Festival and shows at XpoNorth and Belladrum Tartan Hearts Festivals this summer.
The song explores the turmoil within a family who are faced with making the decision to turn off a loved one’s life support machine. The narrative comes from the perspective of the oldest son, who finds himself unable to cope with the lingering doubt in the aftermath of the choice he has made.
