Praise for debut album It's Been A Long Time Awaiting:
"Australia has been blessed with its share of vocal pop groups of late, but The Nymphs – now more than ever with the release of this immensely satisfying album – might just triumph as Melbourne’s finest. 4/5 stars "
"Their four-part a cappella vocal harmony is as tight as a barbershop quartet and the arranging clever and invariably complex"
"Fans of The Nymphs rejoice: after almost a decade of pitch-perfect a capella harmonies, the band have finally released an album. Summoning the sounds of bygone eras, the debut LP features everything you’d expect from the local favourites: stunning voices, stamps, and handclaps, without the aid of instrumentation."
Other Press for The Nymphs:
"Opening with their version of the 1940s hit Paper Doll’, The Nymphs showed off their sublime arrangements, demonstrating the doubled melodies and brilliant harmonies that have made them so popular over their nine year career, while the Bek Chapman penned ‘Lookin For Love’ shows their comedic and somewhat cheeky side, garnering more than a few giggles from the crowd."
What Sound Melbourne Review of The Nymphs' Farewell Show, Ding Dong Lounge 21 March 2014
"a Melbourne all-gal-troop who could sass the pants from you & sing you to sleep at the same time."
Patience Hodgson, The Grates (2011)
"They’re funny. They’re not in any way precious. But more than that, they’re four very talented lasses who have managed to put out a unique and very listenable EP... The retro sound has been updated so that it sounds paradoxically modern, and the pure style that ekes out of your speakers is a total listening pleasure. They’re a highly talented group busting out some highly unique style. Give it a whirl – you’ll sing, you’ll dance, you’ll LOL."
Renee Tibbs, Upstart, reviewing The Nymphs EP (2010)
Anyone keen on dynamite vocal talent best get into these lasses before they’re super famous and you can’t get a ticket to their shows. It’ll happen soon, and you’ll be all, “Damn”.
Lisa Dib, AU Review, reviewing The Nymphs EP (2010)
"The Nymphs, a female quartet with sensational harmonies and style"
Kim Edwards, Theatre Press, reviewing 'Speakeasy Vagabonds and Wartime Songbirds', a collaboration between The Nymphs and The Tiger & Me for the Melbourne Cabaret Festival (2011)
"But that's really the beauty and uniqueness of The Nymphs. Their voices are the only instruments they need. Theirs is the ability and the wherewith-all to hit those certain notes together that sound like sonic honey. It's simply delicious stuff. "
