NÄM is an indie-electro duo from Austin, TX, compromised of producer/multi-instrumentalist Sam Simmons and vocalist Nora Luders.
The two met while Nora was living in Germany and Sam in Tennessee. After sending beats and recordings to each other back and forth online, the two finally got together in Austin, TX and they’ve been creating new projects and performing together ever since.
Drawing inspiration from Chet Faker, Lorde, Lauryn Hill, and Ta-Ku, NÄM established their sound and released their first EP in 2016, UMLAUT, recorded, mixed and mastered by Sam himself, consisting of layers of bright, sweeping instrumentation complimented by Nora’s delicate yet brilliant lyrics.
Their latest single “Face” landed on Spotify’s US Viral 50 Chart (debuting at #3), and the Global Viral 50 Chart (debuting at #5). NÄM’s highly anticipated sophomore EP will be released in August 2017 with several single releases throughout the summer.
