Popping off in the Australian grime and hip-hop scenes, Brisbane MC Nerve has secured his place as one of the best new spitters in the country. His 2019 track ‘Sunday Roast‘ saw him reach the #4 most played artist on Triple j Unearthed and he’s about to tour Australia and New Zealand with Manchester superstar Aitch after appearing on the official remix for his #1 UK single ‘Taste’ alongside Hooligan Hefs.
Despite his roots in the gritty underground, ‘Hopscotch’ sees Nerve flex his pop prowess, both as a rapper and producer. “I woke up, made this beat and wrote the entire track in about 2 hours,” Nerve says. “Normally, that’s how most of the best stuff happens cause I just catch a certain energy and smash it all out. I had it recorded by the afternoon, and I knew it was gonna be the next single.”
Continuing the feel-good aura created by ‘Hopscotch’, the accompanying video (filmed by A/V Club) was filmed in Nerve’s sunny hometown of Brisbane, creating a fantasyland where he’s joined by his tightly-knit crew No1 Network, as well as sports cars, pool parties and a 10-year-old version of himself.
