NÄM is an electronic-indie duo from Austin. The duo is made up of Nora Luders and Sam Simmons, who met online 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, that was completely DIY, recorded, mixed and mastered by Sam himself, consisting of layers of bright, sweeping instrumentation complimented by Nora’s delicate yet brilliant lyrics. In 2017 they followed that up with their second EP Body Lotion, featuring break out hits “Face” and “Shallow + Deep.”
