Australian rising rap music star Nerve is back with another hit ‘Reece’s Peeces‘ featured along with official video
Nerve’s new single ‘Reece’s Peeces‘ is another display of Nerve‘s preference for rapping about food (See his breakout single ‘Sunday Roast‘, added to high rotation on triple j) as well as his ability to deliver witty punchlines and tightly-wound bars with effortless ease.
With a thorough history in Australia’s grime and hip-hop scenes, Nerve has long proven his ability to spit over different styles and tempos, with ‘Reece’s Peeces‘ offering a sparse beat that’s disrupted by earth-shattering 808s and bass. The instrumental was cooked up by Nerve himself in five minutes, with the minimal production allowing his commanding vocals to take the driver’s seat.
Nerve says about the video, “We wanted to create something that represented as much of our experience with various Australian subcultures as possible. So naturally, we had a massive food fight, went skydiving, rode horses and practised BDSM.”
‘Reece’s Peeces‘ is rap bravado in Nerve‘s trademark larrikin style, seeing him take cheeky jabs at opponents while serving up his message of self-confidence: “Pull up your socks, this is a bop,” the hook states. “Be a boss. Fix up. Do whatever you want and do it better than anybody else. It’s healthy to be confident,” Nerve says. “You gotta be your own biggest fan these days, because everybody wants to knock you down a peg, especially in Australia.”
