DECIDE drops Sept. 16.
On “Gloom,” Djo tackles the darker side of synth-pop. In the beginning, Djo’s vocals and a lush kick stand against a vigorous guitar groove. As the song continues, his voice shifts to match the tone and latent aggression of his stringed accompaniment.
DEVO’s influence on the song is unmistakable. The whole track is a strangely inflected, absurd lamentation for self and society that’s sure to get stuck in your head.
