After reading the title of Massachusetts-bred Booth newcomer Jinx‘s new single, you might be expecting an ode to the popular sportswear company, or perhaps a track centered around a (probably F-bomb-containing) acronym. The truth, however, is considerably weirder than either of those options: F.I.L.A. is the name of a “futuristic love angel” from the past (yeah, I’m not sure how that works either), who sparks up a romance with the rapper, a spacefaring adventurer who refers to himself as “the black Buzz Lightyear.” The time travelers’ romance is passionate, but short-lived; ultimately, their feelings for one another aren’t enough to bridge the temporal gap, and their love meets a bittersweet end. So yeah, it’s a little out there – whether or not you can wrap your heard around the spaced-out premise, though, the combo of Jinx’s witty rhyme style and producer Adrian McKennon‘s dreamy boardwork makes for an appealingly strange experience. Like what you’re hearing? More fantastic journeys await on the artist’s Furutama LP, released in April and out now online.
