Many of you should be familiar with Jimi Somewhere, the young Norwegian artist who has caught our eye as he quickly rises. Jimi Somewhere is the project of 22-year-old artist Benjamin Schandy, who’s on the cusp of releasing his debut album. With a penchant for crafting intimate songs backed by sprawling soundscapes, we are looking forward to seeing how he develops a full length album on the forthcoming LP Nothing Gold Can Stay, out on February 5th. The final single from it is “The World,” a reflective song that explores the depths of long distance relationships and personal growth.
Yet again, Jimi interestingly develops a unique composition of instrumentals, electronics, and vocals. Beginning with delicate piano and a fuzzy bassline, Jimi delivers an introspective verse. As the verse culminates, the landscape of the song shifts with a sprawling synth and drawn out vocals. Jimi always develops such a unique raw emotional aspect with his music, and it’s a stirring one here.
