Biography

Nimmo & the Gauntletts was formed by childhood friends Sarah Nimmo and Reva Gauntlett at Hampstead School in Kilburn, North London around the close of the 20th Century. Originally an acoustic 2 piece, Sarah and Reva with the recent addition of Josh [who they also met at the same high school], Hannah and Jack are now a fully fledged line up based between London and Brighton.

Typically they share a diverse range of influences notably The Strokes, Arcade Fire, The Shangri Las, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac.

Their debut EP ‘Young Light’ was released on 23rd January 2012 on their own Town House Records.

Capturing the essence of a youthful emerging band, their ‘Young Light’ debut EP is an energetic, diverse and honest record.

Sarah says 'I hope Young Light is not only a statement of where we are now but also an indication of where we could go'. 'I think it is evident that we are still finding our feet stylistically but we learnt a lot from the recording process and working with producer Ian Grimble'.

Nimmo & the Gauntletts have received support from Strummerville and Don Letts on 6Music and are mentored by Emmy the Great. They have supported the likes of Lucy Rose, Mystery Jets and Man Like Me.
