After being nominated as Best New Artist for ACAM Awards with his first three songs released in 2020, Costa Rica-based indie-pop singer JAVI JIMENEZ follows up with a rather melodically catchy tune titled, ‘Better Without U,’ a great introduction to his upcoming debut EP.
The singer worked alongside guitarist Alberto Álvarez, mixing their songwriting, guitar arrangements and production abilities to shape the songs into thought-out emotional pop songs that fit nicely in the libraries of fans of LANY or The 1975.
Speaking of the single, Javi says: “‘Better Without U’ is about that “fake it till you make it” attitude in getting over someone. When you’re in your most vulnerable and honest, at 3am, you admit you would do anything to get back to your loved one, but you feel like you could never show that, so you pretend you’re ok, you lie and say you’re better off. This lie escalates and, often, leads to harmful overcompensation trying to hook up constantly with whoever you can, ironically leaving you feeling even more alone in the end”
