…in the deep end, JIMKATA – Weight Of Paradise [Wayne Schultheis, producer]
by Walter Price
The vast new single from LA’s Jimkata, “Weight of Paradise”, is a sweeping indie-rock juggernaut. The arena-ready track, a telling opus about the burdens of trying to achieve the uppermost achievements your mind can imagine, will slide nicely into your Arcade Fire, Frightened Rabbit, and Broken Social Scene heavy playlist.
I got a friend who burns too bright
Needs a little bit of water just to cool the light
I said be careful you don’t get in over your head
Cause you’re swimming and swimming
Now you’re in the deep end
And you’re lucky to be alive
Feeling the weight of building your paradise
And it’s right to feel the weight sometimes
This brilliant single is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, ‘Bonfires’, which is expected Spring 2020. And you can stream it and watch its accompanying lyric video, now at the GTC.
