Nimmo at Scala, London photos | #FromTheArchive

From the Archive: Nim­mo per­form­ing at the Scala, Lon­don, in June 2016.

Nim­mo is Sarah Nim­mo and Reva Gauntlett, and togeth­er they’ve been forg­ing their own path through the messy world of music. After qui­et­ly walk­ing away from a major label deal with Sony, the duo took some time to write and focus on how they could make the music their hearts’ desired.

And their per­sis­tence and com­mit­ment to their vision paid off. Nimmo’s debut album, The Pow­er, was released inde­pen­dent­ly in 2019 to a rap­tur­ous crit­i­cal recep­tion. Both women iden­ti­fy as queer, and have spo­ken about how their expe­ri­ence of being part of the queer com­mu­ni­ty has helped shape their art. It’s inti­mate, expan­sive elec­tron­ic music for hap­py hours and a touch of the surreal.

Right now, the duo can be heard on ‘OnlyL’, the lat­est sin­gle by ris­ing elec­tron­ic pro­duc­er Tsha.
