There’s Shades of Maribou State on this Beauty..
Norwegian alt-pop producers Jimmy Smash, return with a nuanced and lush piece of analogue downtempo bliss in the form of ‘Under’. Drenched in warm synths and reverb-soaked vocals, we’re getting serious Jungle, Maribou State or Bonobo vibes from this one and we’re completely here for it.
Coming from a background of classical music training, Mikkel Graham Guttormsen and Håvard Lyngstad each bring different tastes and influences to the creative process. Mikkel was raised on the sounds of A Tribe Called Quest, Gangstarr and The Roots before he later immersed himself in a doctorate in the legendary J Dilla. Håvard on the other hand, spent his youth playing various roles in prog and thrash metal bands.
It’s a backstory and a musical heritage that’s lead them to over 6 million streams across Spotify and growing audience worldwide for their unique take on electronica. Listen to the new single in full below
