NYMPH is a Brooklyn-based psychedelic-shred/avant-garde outfit whose tempestuously transcendent music has received critical acclaim with their breakthrough debut release on The Social Registry. NYMPH's compositional pallette encompasses an ebullient kaleidoscope of sound: imagine 13th Floor Elevators essaying a Rahsaan Roland Kirk jam and you begin to get the picture. The blissful spirit and luxuriant execution of NYMPH's showering riffage is combined with intuitive vocal expression largely free from the semantic bounds of lyric & finds form in a cavalcade of orgasmic yelps, howls & piercing screams, all atop an orgiastic din of swirling polyrhythmic bedlam.
