01 Nimmo are a five-piece band fronted by Sarah and Reva, who’ve been BFFs since they were 11.

02 Sarah and Reva are so close, they can’t imag­ine dat­ing some­one the other didn’t like. “We’ve tried that and it was just a re­ally strange dy­namic, so we ended up ditch­ing them both,” Sarah says. “Now we’re both like, ‘It’s me or her!’”

03 Their mu­si­cal in­flu­ences are su­per-di­verse – Mor­ris­sey, Fleet­wood Mac, dance tunes heard at teenage raves – but all Nimmo songs have some­thing in com­mon. “They all have this kind of tight, phys­i­cal, ag­gres­sive en­ergy,” Reva ex­plains. “And they all come from a very real place, emo­tion­ally.”

04 Check out Di­lute This, a per­co­lat­ing elec­tro-pop song about the “bored love” stage of a re­la­tion­ship, and UnYoung, a catchy house track that deals with the fear of watch­ing your par­ents get older.

05 They re­cently sup­ported Years & Years on tour and say it was “a dream gig”. Reva ex­plains: “Be­cause of ev­ery­thing Olly [Alexan­der] and the band stand for, you go on stage know­ing there’s go­ing to be ac­cep­tance. Even their 13-year-old fans are su­per-lib­eral, which is kind of mind-blow­ing, re­ally.”

06 “Olly sex­u­ally lib­er­ates the en­tire room,” Sarah adds. “Men, women, who­ever... They all wanna go and dutty wine with him.”

07 They want their de­but al­bum, due this au­tumn, to have a “real weight” to it. “We want peo­ple to get down ‘n’ dirty to it for five hours at a party, but also to put it in their head­phones and re­ally get into the words.”
