With their newest single “Wanna Go”, American pop trio Jimkata have a gem in their hands. Alongside its colourful music video, the song generally has a leaning towards eccentric. Analog synths and rhythmic basslines form the basis of the multi-layered instrumentation. The singers’ inviting vocals and harmonies sound perfect enough for the interesting lyrics. “Wanna Go” talks about the negative impacts of social media on one’s sense of social value.
“It took on an extra layer of meaning for us after the pandemic began and we all started quarantining, stuck in our houses and apartments, staring into our phones, longing for a different world and becoming overly acquainted with our immediate surroundings.”Jimkata
This record marks the return of Jimkata after they’d proceeded into a hiatus that lasted slightly more than two years.
