Jimmy Whispers | Heart Don’t Know

There’s some so charming about the impassioned, breaking vocals of Chicago’s Jimmy Whispers, on his beautiful, short-but-sweet, new romantic track “Heart Don’t Know”: “Baby, when I come back, when I come back / I need you / Tell me all the things I need to know / Ohhh / I don’t need to know / Ohhh.” The song is simple enough, with a consistent, repeated organ rhythm that comes back full circle to the chorus, wrapped in a heartfelt elegance. There’s a loneliness in the vocals, which are slightly muted behind the instrumentation, imbuing the voice with a kind of fragility or shyness. But there’s also a steadiness to the pace that gives this love song a steadfast persistence too. “Heart Don’t Know” is featured on the upcoming release, Summer In Pain, out via Moniker Records where it’s available for pre-order. Jimmy Whispers is scheduled to open for Ariel Pink on February 17th in Chicago at Thalia Hall. Follow Jimmy Whispers at facebook.
