Electronic rock band Jimkata saturates synth grooves in emotional gravitas.

Jimkata band members Evan Friedell (guitar, vocals), Packy Lunn (drums) and Aaron Gorsch (synth) became friends in middle school. Their Ithaca, New York-based trio—which is named for cult favorite kung-fu movie “Gymkata”—has worked for years without a record label or publicist, boldly opting to take a DIY approach time and again on their musical journey.

Building their substantial fan base by word of mouth, this dedicated group plays approximately 150 shows each year, crowd-funds their records and puts heart and soul into every shimmering dance tune. Jimkata’s latest fan-funded album, In Motion (2016), was inspired by the fact that all things in the universe are constantly in motion—a fitting physics principle for a band that always seems to be on the road.
