New Music Video: Fine Line – Jimmy Smash

Following the release of their latest single ‘Fine Line’ last month, alt R&B/pop duo JIMMY SMASH unveiled a rather spaced out video which showcases clips of nature at its very finest.

‘Fine Line’ is the follow-up release to debut single, ‘Macadamian’, which garnered support from music tastermakers including Clash magazine and Spotify Viral 50. With melodic fusion of carefree pop/R&B, this single – which tells the tale of an unrequited love – may well continue their newfound attention.

Watch the lyric video for the single.

New Track: Fine Line – Jimmy Smash

Following the release of their debut single, ‘Macadamian’, Norwegian soul-pop duo Jimmy Smash are set to drop their easygoing follow-up, ‘Fine Line’.

‘Fine Line’ was self-produced in vocalist Håvard Lyngstad’s childhood home and is a melting pot of organic instrumentation, analog synthesisers and rich 80s R&B melodies, carried by Lyngstad’s raspy tone and soft falsetto.

Depicting a tale of unrequited love, the song tackles “the dilemma of getting pulled deeper and deeper into someone, even though the person never returns the favour. Although lyrically melancholic, the juxtaposition of the tranquil production instils a sense of hopefulness throughout the carefree track, resulting in a nostalgic, halcyon aesthetic that is soon becoming their trademark.

Releasing their debut single in early October, the band saw exposure from Clash, The Burning Ear, Norwegian radio stations NRK P1 and P3, and rose to #3 in Norway’s Spotify Viral Top 50. Blending a soft R&B sound with pop rock elements, the duo conjure up a heavenly sound similar to the likes of Dornik, Matt Corby and James Bay.

Although fresh onto the scene, JIMMY SMASH are already starting to make their unique imprint on the music industry in challenging the pop music of today. With plenty of music to come, be sure to keep an eye on the soulful duo….
