Kingston rockers JIMBO released their sophomore EP “Where the Vultures Gather” on Friday, targeting fans of grunge bands like Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, and Alice in Chains.
Drawing inspiration from groovy fusion, hard rock, and goth rock, the band aims to create rock music that ‘pays respect to the past, acknowledges the future but makes the listener dissolve in the present’.
“The tracks on this EP were decided early on as they are our favourite songs to play live and ones that we see get the most audience response,” said the band. “‘Mamawawa’ and ‘Where The Vultures Gather’ were made to be headbanging songs made to play loud with aggressive guitars and drums.”
“‘Pyrethrin’ maintains that heaviness, but demonstrates the progressive rock tendencies of the band,” they added. “JIMBO’s main goal is to make artistic rock music. We find most other bands nowadays embrace the internet culture and fads. You probably won’t get that vibe from JIMBO. JIMBO is darker than most of the bands that are in the scene right now.”
“Where the Vultures Gather” is now available for streaming and download on:
