iuPiers is back to take his place with ‘These Nights’ a laid back boom-bap ode to friendship, family and future good times. The piano-led break, although originally composed by Piers, sounds like it’s straight off an early Nas record, cut with heavy drums and Piers’ laid back delivery to evoke his influences (Tribe Called Quest and The Neptunes) perfectly.
Piers says of the release: “When I started producing ‘These Nights’, the chords I put down on the piano gave me an uplifting feel, so I wanted to make this track something special and from the heart, not just raps over a beat. It had a nostalgic feel, reminding me of previous good times spent with friends, family and even looking forward to future memories that we’ll share. I think sometimes in life we focus too much on the negative side of things so wanted to bring some positivity within the lyrics and vibe of the song.”
Following on from last year’s critically acclaimed Vibes and Tribulations EP, ‘These Nights’ is the new single from the follow-up Vibes and Tribulations II coming later in the year. Vibes & Tribulations II is available to pre-order now here.
