Austin, TX alternative artist, LJ Gomez, let the soul pour in his hazily sweet latest lo-fi single, Soon. Fans of Radiohead, Bon Iver, Ye, and James Blake will want to bathe in the trippy tape-effect saturated guitar tones that complement the glitchy trip-hop beats.
By opening with the lyric, “is it possible to miss somebody that you never knew”, you’re instantly disarmed by LG Gomez’s candour and artful vulnerability. Even if the question was hypothetical, the answer is a resounding yes. There’s nothing quite as melancholy stirring as needing someone that doesn’t yet exist in your peripheral vision. And on the other hand, there’s nothing quite as sweet as the grasp of the belief that the right one is right around the corner.
