Now touring to support their innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital, Jimkata has been a mainstay of the Northeast for years. Recent traction stemming from the rise of electronic dance music (EDM) has afforded them the opportunity to continue expanding their signature brand of song-oriented electro-rock. Analog synthesizers and heavy bass notes fill the electronic role, while big guitars create space for shredding within the structure of pure indie rock. Over the years they have consistently backed up their reputation for creating high-energy dance parties at such music festivals as Summer Camp, Camp Bisco, and Mountain Jam alongside such diverse acts as Primus, LCD Soundsystem, Pretty Lights & The Roots. For Jimkata fans, however, the show doesn’t end when the lights come up. Jimkata’s relevant, quotable lyrics create music not just for the fleeting moments, but for the lifestyle of an entire generation.
“Jimkata proves that rock-based music still has a place in the world of four-on-the-floor beats.”
“The band’s powerful drumming and guitar work ride the same wave, catching synthetic high fives and whispering rock n’ roll lyricism out over the constant current of their sonic ocean.”
“What this generation needs more of, a band with a fresh sound that’s influenced by great music, with an honest and positive perspective about our place in society.”
