OptycNerd is an electronic hip-hop/pop duo based in Denver, CO. After meeting at a party and realizing they both had the same first name, Chris Kimmel and Chris Scott knew immediately that they had to form a group and change human existence as we know it.

Their music combines catchy, synth and sample-based beats with conscious and witty lyricism to create a truly unique sound. Many consider the group to be a cross between the vocal styles of Macklemore and the pop-electro vibes of The Chainsmokers.

OptycNerd’s performance is an experience that combines live and electronic instrumentation, crowd interaction, and all around high energy.
