This morning EILE features San Diego native, Electro-Pop artist, and multi-instrumentalist, Simon XO, has just released his first solo project, a double-single called Waiting for Me to Break/How Do I Fight It. (Simon is also featured in EILE monthly edition for January above).
The two evocative synth-pop singles have a folk narrative, coupled with lush synths, guitar riffs, meaty drumbeats, and a soulful vocal to tap into your thoughts – all to be heard in Waiting for Me to Break. His lyrics are filmic, bringing you right to the spot where it’s happening, as with the second single, How Do I Fight It.
“How do I fight it/The sense I’m no good/Why am I lying/I’m not misunderstood”
Couple this with a soaring vocal, and you’ve got another emotional roller-coaster of a song in the second single. Simon is all set to release an EP, Covering, due for mid-2018, which features songs with emotive themes of doubt, loved ones, and facing intrapersonal fears. Just the stuff life is made of, we can’t wait!
