Quick Thoughts: st jimmy’s latest track, angels, begins with a beautiful, smooth guitar loop and a punk-inspired drum sample. The Las Vegas native’s sound can loosely be defined as hyperpop, but labelling him fails to capture the full sonic range he brings in this track. Throughout angels, he shows flashes of today’s emo-rap scene, while also taking from punk-rock influences of the early 2000s.
Writing with nostalgia and impassioned imagery, st jimmy presents himself as a lyricist who is fully comfortable with vulnerability. He sings in his rangy voice, matching the emotional spirit of the lyrics perfectly. With more songs like angels, st jimmy could be in store for a huge 2021. Stream angels on Spotify:
