Stream: Strength N.I.A – Margaret


With their second album set for release post-festival season, Strength N.I.A have returned with their first single of the year, ‘Margaret’.

A typically idiosyncratic and bombastic effort from the Derry alt-pop project, the track – which has received support from the likes of BBC 6Music – marries drums and thrift-store organ patterns with bobbing bass and frontman Rory Moore’s vocal refrains.

Strength N.I.A play the following dates in May.

Friday, May 3: Whelans, Dublin
Friday, May 17: Venue TBA, Derry
Friday, May 24: Roundy, Cork
