In The Spotlight

Jimkata – “Roots Down”

This trio of synth-washed, electro-rock musicians have been friends since their school days. Named after the 1985 film “Gymkata”, Evan Friedell, Aaron Gorsch and Packy Lunn are influenced by modern synths, indie rock as well as Motown, James Taylor and old country songs, forging an one-of-a-kind sound by fusing analog synths and catchy hooks. They released their self-titled debut EP in 2007.

Returning after a two-and-a-half year hiatus, their new single tickles the senses from the first funky bass plucks and a bouncy beat. Taken from their upcoming album “Bonfires”, expected to drop in Spring 2021, the synths are scintillating, the guitars electric and the vocals refreshing. And with an infectious, upbeat chorus worming its way into your ears, this quirky groove breathes feel-good fun.
