Earlier this month, a fantastic band from London called The Nyx was bought to our attention! We got the chance to chat with their new drummer Sim about her start, how she got into drumming and the goals she has for herself as a drummer!
What was it about drumming that peaked your interest when you first picked up a pair of sticks?
For me, there is no other feeling quite like it. Hitting drums with big pieces of wood but making all these different sounds and rhythms fascinates me. When I picked up my first pair of sticks something just clicked and that was it, I was hooked.
What’s your current kit setup?
Do you have any favorite gear brands? If yes, what are they and why?
I love NATAL, it is important for me to have an extremely sturdy and robust kit that looks and sounds beastly. This is exactly what my current kit gives me. The company and their staff are beyond helpful and really down to earth, they make you feel like you’re part of something rather than just supplying you with some gear and disappearing.
I get about a bit yeah ; ) I have not been in a band of sisters before which is what I LOVE about The Nyx. This band has to be the coolest and craziest I have encountered so far.
When people set their new years resolutions that’s when I normally plan what I want to do musically for the year. So last year it was to tour a few countries (that worked out). This year it is to get in to studios more and record on as much as I can & so far so good! Got a few exciting sessions coming up which I look forward to sharing.
