Single Review: Two Spot Gobi – ‘Simon’s Song (Alright)’

2 min read

With their forthcoming album The Sun Will Rise on the horizon, Brighton based sextet Two Spot Gobi are set to release their brand new track, Simon’s Song (Alright) on May 16th.

TwoSpotGobiTheSunWillRiseRecorded at the Californian home of Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter James Mraz, the song erupts from the first note and lifts off in a kaleidoscope of instrumentation before front man James Robinson’s charm heavy and surf friendly vocals take the bull by the horns and ride the track with an international indie icon quality right to the end. Around him his band supply a magnificent backdrop of talent as an orgy of instruments that include trumpets, drums, cello and guitars add a sturdy support to their front mans cool crooning.

Lyrically, Simon’s Song (Alright) is an optimistic gem as Robinson declares repeatedly that ‘everything will be alright’ alongside a warm and fluffy melody that drills itself into your head leaving a lasting feeling of raised spirits and sense of uplift.

The track is a welcoming addition to the strong league of summer indie-pop bands that are currently making a name for themselves and Two Spot Gobi is set to join the ranks as one of the bands to keep plugged into as they make their mark on the genre with a fresh and enthusiastic approach to music and just how it should sound.
