Jimbo’s Garage from Finland is a band that combines the hookiest elements of modern heavy rock and traditional hard rock. They are releasing debut album later this spring and now they present the second single from their upcoming album.
Band leader Jimbo Mäkeläinen comments on the new track: “I knew that I got here something that I really like. Strong guitar riffs and even stronger vocal melodies. I decided to highlight the band’s excellent singing talent. Taage and Maya created really strong vocal tracks on this one.
On drums and keyboards I wanted to create a feeling about a Central European disco hall. You know the gigantic arenas that have like crowd capacity of thousands. In fact I actually didn’t need to do much about it as the track already naturally had that vibe. But you always need a vision. When I had the mix in my hands I was like – this is it! Damn good song”
