Kristian Nairn Debuts B-side to Debut Single ‘Up/Beacon’ on SoundCloud
Renowned locally and internationally in the field of music and performance, Kristian Nairn is a prolific homegrown talent. Widely recognized for his portrayal of the lovable, Hodor on HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, Nairn has been DJing and producing for over a decade, holding down a residency for eleven years at Kremlin, one of Ireland’s most popular and enduring venues.
Nairn is now taking the electronic music world by storm with the release of his debut single, ‘Up / Beacon’ available now on Radikal Records. The lead single, “Up” features the dreamy vocals of Leanne Robinson, and after a first week of coverage from publications like Ministry of Sound, Thump/Vice and The Verge – “Up” is about to hit 100K Plays on SoundCloud.
Today, Nairn has released the single’s B-side,“Beacon,” a progressive-house track with a unique blend of heavy synths and electro elements. The track trades the vocals and piano driven melodies of “Up” for a darker, more atmospheric sound; making it a perfect addition for his after-hours DJ sets.
Nairn has been on an international tour, aptly titled “Rave of Thrones” with shows across Europe, Australia and the United States. You can purchase tickets for when Kristian Nairn’s “Rave of Thrones” stops at Irving Plaza in NYC on Thursday, August 13th by clicking here.
