Dig Nitty’s new album Reverse of Mastery is out on September 18th via Exploding in Sound Records.

Brooklyn indie folk quartet Dig Nitty have shared the third single from their upcoming album Reverse of Mastery. Titled ‘Small Curd’, the song also serves as the opening track on the record. Check out its delicate beauty below.

“‘Small Curd’ came out like a nursery rhyme – I wrote it after watching birds kill their young on the beach and was thinking about self-sabotage and fear, ” says Erin McGrath (guitar/vocals). “At the time, I had been dealing with chronic illness for a couple of years and that was definitely a part of that thought – how bodies can self-sabotage, and then more broadly our relationships with others, life itself, and how that cycle is sometimes self-inflicted but is also just the universal shape of things, full circle. Reverse of Mastery as a whole is focused on the details of unravelling moments; the title is a quote from an essay by Durga Chew-Bose that explores solitude and loss, and the record contains a handful moments of un-doings and letting go under a microscope.”
