Nia Archives has announced her new EP, ‘Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against Tha Wall’, and released a new single, ‘Conveniency’.
The EP, out on 10th March, follows a successful last year for Archives that saw her receive a BRITs Rising Star nomination, a MOBO win for Best Electronic/Dance Act, and a third-place finish in the BBC Sound Of poll.
“‘Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against The Wall’ is that feeling when you’ve been at an afters and you’re in someone’s kitchen… there’s all these thoughts running through your head, the sun comes up and it’s the most disgusting feeling ever with an element of bliss at the same time. All you wanna do is bang your head against the wall and teleport home,” Nia explains. “Across the EP I’m broadly talking about growing up as a person, reaching new levels of maturity, love and loss, rejection, estrangement, the come up and the come down. It’s the most exciting project I’ve made yet and it’s a window into the future and the kind of artist I wanna become. It’s six tracks with six different moods soundtracking the recent chapter in my life.”
Nia is also heading out on tour in March and April, with stops in London, Manchester, Brighton, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, and Glasgow.
