After meeting at a party and realizing they both had the same first name, Chris Kimmel and Chris Scott immediately knew that they had to form a group and change human existence as we know it.
They joined forces and created what is now known as OptycNerd. Since then, the Denver-based duo has crafted their own signature sound- one that fuses electronic production with the lyrical and melodic elements of hip hop and pop. They channel some of their favorite artists including Snakehips, Disclosure, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, and Classixx to create what critics have called "some of the hottest new music since Gregorian chant." When people first hear their music, they often say things like, "It's not bad" or "I don't really listen to music." With consistently dope releases such as their new single, "Apollo," and new EP, "Nonfiction," OptycNerd has proven themselves to be key players in the Denver music scene. With these guys on your radar, you can expect a constant supply of bangers, an outrageous social media presence, and high energy live performances. In the future, OptycNerd plans to keep working at their craft and eventually become elite members of the Illuminati.
