Nimmo – UnYoung (Lone Remix)
Following the announcement of their new single ‘UnYoung’, London-based five-piece Nimmo unveil a ravey piano house remix courtesy of R&S’s Lone, “who throws his signature twinkling keys and phased synths over chunky, rolling bass drums” in the words of FACT.
Produced by Boxed In (Oli Bayston), ‘UnYoung’ is a taut, nocturnal take on hedonistic dance, channelling Nimmo’s natural energy as a live-band into their most infectious work to date. 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.”
‘UnYoung’ is out now via Columbia Records. Lone & Paul Woolford remixes available from January 29th.
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. Filtering the band’s shared childhood exposure to garage, jungle, drum n’ bass and ’80s pop (Tears for Fears, New Order), 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. If their pristine sportswear and tomboyish tailoring wasn’t an additional clue, Nimmo are far from your typical breakout band.
Following an early, acclaimed EP via Kitsuné, Nimmo have since picked up support across Radio 1, 6Music, XFM and KCRW – also collaborating with the likes of Tim Goldsworthy (DFA) and their old school mate Maya Jane Coles. From two disobedient, North-West-London schoolgirls to a thick-as-thieves five-piece, Nimmo are now poised for a breakout year ahead.
