BABYNYMPH & Diana Starshine share the broken euphoria of ‘Trauma Pop Pt. II’ for REIF’s 02 compilation

, 27 May 2022

REIF is releasing a self-titled compilation 02 on June 10, with preview track ‘BABYNYMPH, ‘Trauma Pop Pt. II Ft. Diana Starshine’ premiering today on AQNB. The record concludes their residency and Sonic Catharsis program at Centre D’Art Contemporain Geneve, which involved two compilations with artists like Asmara, Fuck U Pay US, Emma DJ, and CEM.

The follow-up to their 2021 release, BABYNYMPH’s ‘Trauma Pop Pt. II’ unfolds into melancholic synthwork, slowly building a tender mood before teasing the beat. Its subdued rhythm runs briefly, breaking into lighthearted atmospherics. Demure autotune lyrics shutter the track’s final moments, realizing a broken-down pop that was either in decay or never intended to be whole.**
