Bim are pop duo Rebecca Rosier and Denmark Davis.
Bim first broke onto the scene with their still-loved single Stay In My Memory in 2008. Within two years they had independently written, recorded and released a debut album - Scatterheart - that balanced a uniquely fresh pop sound, gliding effortlessly between fragile piano duets and soaring electro. It was described as "a little bit Saint Etienne, a little bit Massive Attack" by Q magazine. Top pop blogger Electroqueer said “the album isn’t your usual electro-pop fodder, it’s mixed with shimmery ballads and real songs that warm the soul and touch the heart." Instinct Magazine agreed: “it’s cinematic, emotional and, in a year of ballad-less albums, pushes beneath the surface".
The album received unsolicited press as one of Peter Robinson’s top five underground pop bands in NME and featured as Band of the Day in The Guardian. Bim gathered over 1 million hits on YouTube, sat between Mark Ronson and Faithless at no.6 in the iTunes electro chart, and shared bills with Yasmin and I Blame Coco.
Bim returned in 2012 with singles Scream (April; Popjustice song of the day), Lights Out (August; “deliciously dramatic electronic mid-tempo melancholia” – Scandipop) and the Lifelines EP with feature single Burn (November). They are currently finishing their second album.
