NINA & ROMO
NINA & ROMO (Nina Pulimood & Giles Norris) are two young musicians currently based in London. 'Iona' is their debut four-track EP, and represents the culmination of 2 years worth of writing & recording for the pair, who met during their time at University, where they played in a variety of live acts together before forming a lasting musical partnership.
Having written much of the project on the piano, NINA’s songwriting slots effortlessly into the Pop tradition - combining conventional song structure with continually innovative delivery & content, in the end coming to rest somewhere between KT Tunstall & FKA Twigs. Her staccato falsetto bleeds into powerful, catchy hooks & multi-layered harmonies examining frustration, confinement, sublime natural beauty, love & sex.
Sonically ROMO’s production draws upon a great variety of influences; featuring pounding, sub-heavy soundscapes, lush field recordings, and minimalist guitar melodies reminiscent of The XX. Occasionally flirting with Dancehall & Dubstep, throughout ‘Iona’ the UK underground dance scene is an inescapable driving force.
