Born and raised in North-West London, co-vocalists Sarah Nimmo and Reva Gauntlett met on the first day of secondary school, when they were sat together by the teacher. Nimmo’s ambitions were bigger than just the friendship of Sarah and Reva.
The first offering from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Dilute This’, encapsulates this blend of cutting-edge electronica with lyrical melancholy. Honing in on their sound, Nimmo began to be drawn closer to the pulsating 80s pop of Tears for Fears, the modern synth-work of Little Dragon, and the desire to capture the band’s natural live energy on tape, in the manner of someone like Talking Heads.
Having signed with Columbia Records and toured with Years & Years, Nimmo remain uncompromising – on their sound, their look, their message. “We want it to come across that we are tough. But we don’t want to be aggressive about it. We want people to identify with the songs and the subject matter – they should be a shared experience.” It’s this telepapthic bond that is also knotted through the band: from two disobedient schoolgirls (“she’s my bezie innit”) to a thick-as-thieves five-piece, there’s no one quite like Nimmo.
