Liyah Knight and Nerve chat their new collab ‘Cheers’

Nerve and Liyah Knight

Brisbane’s NERVE and Sydney’s LIYAH KNIGHT have joined forces for a brand new collab titled ‘Cheers’, and if you’re across these two, the result is unsurprisingly excellent. Over production courtesy of Korky Buchek, Knight and Nerve prove exactly why they’re two of the country’s most exciting rising names.

Liyah‘s vocals are superb, showing range and emotional vulnerability, and immediately captivate you as soon as the track starts (a perfect example of why we named her an Artist to Watch in 2021). Nerve is on his A-game as always, delivering witty bars with precision over the funk-infused beat. Created during lockdown in 2020, ‘Cheers’ shows that there is indeed SOME good things to come from the mess that was last year.

To celebrate this interstate collaboration, we got Liyah and Nerve to chat to each other a bit more. Here, they discuss how the track came to be, their ill-fated plans for Falls Festival at Lorne, and what they’ve got cooking up for 2021. Check it out below!

‘Cheers’ by Liyah Knight and Nerve is out now. Buy/stream here.
