Music by Bergman: Jimmy Eat World

Emerging as a trailblazing name in the mid-’90s emo scene, Jimmy Eat World eventually found a larger audience by embracing a blend of alternative rock and power pop that targeted the heart as well as the head. 

The band’s influence widened considerably with 1999’s Clarity but it was the band’s follow-up, 2001’s Bleed American, and the infectious single “The Middle” that broke them into the commercial rock mainstream. The emo label proved difficult to shake throughout the 2000s, even when subsequent Top 10 albums Futures (2004) and Chase This Light (2007) did little to evoke the hard-edged sensitivity of Clarity, but Jimmy Eat World still remained a league above the generation of genre torch-bearers they helped spawn. 

Jimmy Eat World have shared a punchy new track called ‘Something Loud’ The track is the band’s first single since ‘Love Never’, which was released in 2019 and featured on the album ‘Surviving’.
