The Nymphs

by The Nymphs

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What do you do when you are already beloved by a coterie of well-armed with charm fans and a reputation that proceeds you for your eloquence, style and luminescence?

Such was the quandary faced by Melbourne chanteuses The Nymphs. Their solution? Release their debut EP of course.

Heretofore a private indulgence of the inexplicably in the know set, The Nymphs are set to take their sumptuous stylings to the masses this November 12 with the release of their eponymous EP.

This six-track tour de lovely is as beguiling and charming as the ladies themselves. Lashed with wit, humour and more than enough musical bells and whistles to keep even the most cynically discerning chinstroker content, oh and yes, did we mention that these ladies can sing? And we mean really sing!

Like the power of their namesakes, the gentle waltz of After Eight lulls the listener into a world lined with velvet and peaking with visceral possibilities; setting one adrift on waves of scintillating sibilance and drenched in four-part harmony sweetness and light. It seems only fitting that the angelic high notes of Song For Two should follow. Replete with clicky-clackly finger clicks, Song For Two is imbued with an irascible energy likened only to that spring in your step that infects the moment you fall in love - quite fitting really.

At the risk of getting too mushy and gushy on the heels of lurve, The Nymphs take a turn for the deliciously perverse with My Deadly Rabbits and Don't Ask Me How. Paper Doll, with its doo-wop bops and four star swing belies the stirring emotion of the track; a heady mix of heartbeats and heartbreak and with the headstrong allure of the two. Closing out proceedings with style, Mr Slink showcases suitably sly piano before ripping voraciously into some jauntily strident jazz before ending on meows...we bet you didn't see that one coming.

Letting audiences around the country in on something a chosen few knew already, The Nymphs debut EP is a beguiling mix of old school charm and 21st century savvy. With equal parts reverence and irreverence to the past, The Nymphs have lovingly crafted an entrancing and musically aware first statement. Go on have a listen, we think you might fall in love.
