“I’m still alive, you’ll never get me.”
Malaysian acoustic, hippie beach pop, soft rock, indie band, Jumero, is made up off brothers Jared and Michael Lim and neighbour as well as friend Ryan David Gomes. Known for their unique sound, some of Jumero’s biggest influence include artists such as John Mayer, Jack Johnson and John Butler Trio to name a few.
Throughout their musical career, these boys have played at some of the biggest music festivals in Malaysia including Urbanscapes 2012 and 2014, Guinness Amplify 2014, Redang Island Music Festival, Indie Penang and Layan Festival. Now, after first making it in the scene two years ago, Jumero has released their first official single “Fantasy Killer”.
The track which was written by lead singer, Jared Lim, is inspired by the band’s own personal experiences, as well as, their friends who go through the reality of the “dreaded quarter life crisis”. In this case, “Reality” is the “Fantasy Killer”.
Acknowledging reality as the monster that kills most of everyone’s “childhood dreams” of flying to the moon, growing wings, or even having an underground empire that defies gravity, these boys choose to go against the norm of conforming by singing “I’m still alive, you’ll never get me”, which this gorgeous track.
This track makes for the debut single of Jumero’s upcoming EP set for release sometime next year. Till then, here’s “Fantasy Killer”. Enjoy!
