Nimf is an Irish sugar-pop performance artist from Arklow. Whimsically singing while playing the theremin, her performance aesthetic transports you to a dreamy land. Being fascinated with magical creatures from a young age, nimf juxtaposes the traditional nymph with a cyberpunk twist.
Her newest single, ‘cloudy dreams,’ is the epitome of a DIY musician, from creating the entire track in her own bedroom, to the artwork, PR, and business-y thingies. An escapist of reality, this track represents nimf’s experiences as an autistic musician and her need to indulge in her own imagination.
Starting on an acoustic guitar and slowly moving towards an electronic style, nimf has captivated her listeners with playful, child-like lyrics and music, comparable to Yaeji, Kero Kero Bonito, and CHAI. There is a strong element of humour used in her music alongside the darker themes that are explored, such as experiencing autistic burnout, social anxiety, and intimacy. Using these themes with the quirky, playful music creates an immersive and authentic experience.
Playing in the likes of Whelan’s Ones To Watch, Arcadian Field Festival, The Button Factory, The Grand Social, Dolans Warehouse, BIMM Midnight Hour in Whelans, nimf has shown her ability to enchant and entertain her audience.
