Simon Doom Blends Gloom and Good Times on ‘Baby Man’
Simon Doom has your best interests at heart. While most musicians pick one or the other, Doom has nailed down how to imbue a song with both undeniable catchiness and rich atmosphere. You'll learn this first time upon listening to his newest record, Baby Man, which he's premiering today. The infectious "I Feel Unloved" offers a stark contrast between cynical lyrics and flowery music. This dichotomy persists through the rest of the record, songs like "Hair of the God" being surreal sing-alongs with huge hooks and fluttery guitar work. He uses garage rock, nostalgic synths and a razor-sharp edge to make music that's all his own.
