Derek Simpson – ‘Naked Forever’
Released officially today, 7th October 2020, ‘Naked Forever’ is the latest release by the superb artist Derek Simpson. It is an indie-rock release that is making waves this autumn.
From an intriguing opening, the single is in full flow. Simpson’s vocals are smooth and enticing. He has a wonderful range which becomes apparent as the song progresses. We adore the groove that develops between the layered and textured guitars, driving drums and melodic bass.
The main melody is memorable and stays with the listener long after the music has ended. Also, the guitar solo is filled with character and charm. It graces the sonic landscape and takes the audience on a new path with the funk groove remaining at the backbone of the song. It is these unexpected twists and turns that keep ‘Naked Forever’ feeling fresh.
Simpson says about the release, “Nature taking its course is truly a wild thing to behold. Surrendering to your own nature is an even more surreal experience. There is undoubtedly a playful air to it all though, and this track is drenched in it, serving as a bubbly reflection of all this beautiful strangeness.”
Hailing from Long Beach, Derek Simpson is a recording artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. In addition, he has also produced music for Kevin Abstract, Dom McLennon, Rockie Fresh and more. Simpson’s music has been featured in Comedy Central’s Workaholics. Derek Simpson is an extremely talented individual, and this became apparent after first hearing ‘Naked Forever’.
We are so excited to have discovered this wonderful artist and very much look forward to hearing what will come next. Until then, make sure you add ‘Naked Forever’ to your weekday playlist. You will not be disappointed!
