"1979" is off of T. Soomian's debut album, Love Relief, an ode to Los Angeles nightlife. This eight-track release recruited an impressive collection of artists to help bring T. Soomian's vision to fruition. With Jon Joseph (of BØRNS) on production and Dan Bailey (Father John Misty) & Austin Scates (of The Technicolors) on contributing drums, I can't help but be dazzled.
"1979" demonstrates T. Soomian's diverse catalog of musical influences, ranging from French pop to '70s psychedelia. The result being a specialized retro-modern blend that he has self-described as "not veering too far from groovy, late '70s dad porno pop music." I definitely agree with & love that analysis.
T. Soomian's hazy, sensual vocals compliment the psych-pop soundscape that he's conjured. Pairing these elements with an infectious chorus has resulted in me listening to "1979" on repeat.
Check out the entire album, Love Relief. I promise you won't regret it.
