Nimmo – UnYoung

NIMMO by Fiona Garden

NIMMO by Fiona Garden

Nimmo are a unique electronic five-piece who can be traced back to the decade-long friendship of co-vocalists (and football-obsessives) Sarah Nimmo and Reva Gauntlett.

Citing 80’s and 90’s pop influences from the likes of Tears for Fears, New Order, and Everything But The Girl, as well as jungle, and drum n bass, Nimmo have immersed themselves not only with the sounds of the club culture, but also located the moods of aggression, energy and heartache within that which would add depth to their songwriting.

Having already collaborated with Tim Goldsworthy (DFA) and Maya Jane Coles, they have now teamed up with Boxed In (aka Oli Bayston) for more of an infectious pop track with ‘UnYoung’.

Lyrically, the band describe ‘UnYoung’ as “a song about the fear of our parents or loved ones in general dying, and only being remembered in photographs on a mantelpiece. As the instrumentation progressed, ‘UnYoung’ became a celebration of your family and just being alive.”

Nimmo have been shortlisted for MTV Brand New 2016. The annual showcase for MTV Brand New 2016 will be at the Electric Ballroom, London on 27 January.

‘UnYoung’ is out early 2016 via Columbia Records.

Sounds like: Boxed In, Years & Years, Everything But The Girl, Lucas Nord, Honne, Sivu, Jata

Rationale reveals the stunning new video to ‘Fuel To The Fire’, inviting us to witness a more passionate side to his music than previously offered.

The track was written by the Londoner after watching particularly grim news on the television 18 months ago. Rationale explains ‘Fuel To The Fire’ “is a song about power, pressure, frustration & hope.”

The extremely evocative video tells the story, and despite the track being written 18 months ago, the subject matter unfortunately remains timeless.
