A band living in Los Angeles, Jimkata knows all too well just how expensive the city really is. From high rent to high priced food, sometimes it gets hard in the city of Angels just to stay afloat.
It is not uncommon that many people residing in this sunny city work multiple jobs just to get by. Jimkata’s latest single “Blessings In Disguise” pays homage to the side hustles we take on in order to pursue our passions.
Singer Evan admits, “We’re all just trying to get by in this age of growing income inequality and to be able to do what you love in the midst of that is special.”
The synth-driven song soars with impassioned vocals and riveting retro flair. The creative collage-like visuals feature an eccentric display of images. The piece is a vibrant work of art and much like the band’s distinct style, melds vintage with contemporary. From Adam and Eve with the forbidden fruit to drumming on mushrooms, this wildly whimsical video provides a rare viewing experience.
The electro-rock trio’s masterful music bursts with soaring synths and catchy pop melodies. Their unique sound connects with listeners all across the country. Members Evan Friedell, Aaron Gorsch and Packy Lunn have been close friends since middle school. That strong bond is what makes the group so in sync. Though they are known for their brand of radiant rock, their influences range from the funk of Motown to the stunning storytelling of James Taylor.
Back from a two and a half year hiatus, Jimkata prepares to unveil their 10-track album Bonfires. The release focuses on thought-provoking themes of uncertainty and seeking hope. With a refreshed perspective and polished finesse, Jimkata are back on the indie scene and better than ever. “Blessings In Disguise” is proof of the restored thirst for their craft.
