Coming in a particularly magnificent Electro Mix, ‘Rhythm + Control’ showcased a hard but danceable tune that somehow crossed Darren Hayes and Britney Spears with Marilyn Manson!
From her self-released her debut EP ‘Nightmare’, this haunting slice of electro-goth drama discharges a penetrating set of dynamics and an enticing feline demeanour. Meanwhile the video, which NYXX describes as “the fruit of my literal blood, sweat, and tears”, also features a cameo from Graves.
With a name inspired by the Greek goddess of night, NYXX issued ‘Nightmare’ in April 2016. The title track was feisty electronic rock with her inherent pop glitz shaken through a Trent Reznor filter. Meanwhile the collection also flirted with Zombie-like heavy metal on ‘Wicked’ and industrial dubstep on ‘Blindsided’.
Having toured North America with AESTHETIC PERFECTION in early 2017, this artistic association with the Aggro-Tech pioneer from Los Angeles has sparked a lot of interest. With two acclaimed songs in ‘Rhythm + Control’ and ‘Diabolical’ already under their belt, any more work possibly involving the pair will be eagerly awaited.
