Sarah Nimmo and Reva Gauntlett may be childhood best friends, but friendship is not the only thing they share. Both talented musicians, they collectively form Nimmo and the Gauntletts, the electronically fueled five piece band and the brains behind ‘Others’, ‘Change’ and their most recent track ‘Jaded’ which was released this week.
Whilst their debut single ‘Change’, a minimal vocally lead offering, caught the attention of model Agyness Deyn who tracked the girls down wanting to direct their music video, ‘Others’ provides its listener with a danceable dosage of electro-pop; and when it comes to ‘Jaded’ there is one word to describe it – disco. But it’s disco with an underlying darkness provoked by the music video which tells the story of two children discovering a dead body.
Having already played a sellout headline show at the Electroweks in November, which saw the duo compared to the sounds of The xx, 2014 is looking to be an inspiring year for Nimmo and Reva. We highly recommend you pay a visit to their Soundcloud and watch the video for ‘Jaded’ below.
