Jimi Somewhere is an artist who seemed to emerge out of thin air. It’s one of those “where have you been all of my life?” situations when it comes to the rising talent. I wasn’t familiar with his music to begin with, but once I started diving deep into his discography, there was no stopping me from hopping on the fan bus. If you haven’t heard of Jimi Somewhere, just go on Spotify and look for every single major editorial playlist. Odds are he’s on all of them.
Just last night, Jimi dropped a single off of his upcoming debut album and the reception has been magnificent. The new offering called, “Bottle Rocket” has already gained traction after being placed of New Music Friday and Lorem. To make one of these is special, but to make two is unreal. This is truly just a testament to the type of music Jimi is making and how much people are loving it. “Bottle Rocket” is a 3 minute and 25 second showing of all the things we love about Jimi. From his infectious energy all the way down to the sonically pleasing production, there is nothing more you could ask for when it comes to his brand new single. According to Jimi:
‘‘Bottle Rocket’ is a song about excitement. I remember when I was in high school and my friends started to get their driver’s licenses, we would just drive out. There was literally nothing happening, but it didn’t really matter because we all had so much energy and just us being together alone was so much fun. I tried to capture that feeling. Of just being excited about everything. Being loud. And feeling invincible!”
What a blessing it is getting to see a young artist make the music he loves while getting the attention he deserves in the process. “Bottle Rocket” is out everywhere. I’ve attached the Spotify link down below, so give it a listen and let us know what you think!
