serpentwithfeet – “Down Nuh River”
Earlier this year, serpentwithfeet released a great new album, DEACON — one of the best albums of 2021 so far, even — and he’s releasing a companion EP called DEACON’S GROVE next month, which features two new songs and some reimaginings of album tracks.
Today, serpentwithfeet is sharing one of those new songs, “Down Nuh River,” a shadowy burble with a sing-song hook. “When working on ‘Down Nuh River’ I was thinking of all the songs that me, my friends and cousins made up as kids,” Josiah Wise wrote in a statement. “We had so much fun creating and reinventing songs on the playground and the porch. I wanted to channel that energy in this track.”
