From the venue:Four years after going on hiatus, Jimkata is back with a renewed sense of purpose and an extraordinary new album. Recorded in Syracuse, Bonfires finds the trio digging deep & stretching their boundaries with bold, intoxicating arrangements fueled by swirling synthesizers & anthemic hooks. The songs here are at once modern & classic, blurring the lines between the organic & the electronic as they reckon with doubt, struggle, & perseverance in a search for truth & meaning. Like much of Jimkata’s catalog, Bonfires delivers transcendence in tight, dancefloor-ready packages, but there’s a sense of freedom at play that pushes the trio’s performances to new emotional heights, a kind of liberation that can only come from learning to let go of expectation & embrace the moment.
