Derek Simpson dives deep with "Open Water" - (5/30/19)

You’re free to ego, free to pride
Free to believe that there’s a you and an I
You’re free to hear a word inside
Free to believe that you’ve already arrived

Long Beach-based alt-pop artist Derek Simpson presents with his most bubbly track to date. “Open Water” uses a beautifully muted palette of pulsating synth, smooth guitar strumming, and infectious percussion - all coalescing around Derek Simpson’s rhythmic gift of gab.

From Derek: "Open Water was inspired by how overwhelming the prospect of taking responsibility for your own happiness is. That freedom is a lovely thing to understand but before it becomes fully realized, the idea of owning up to your action and inaction is terrifying."

“Open Water” is out 5/30/19 on Trailing Twelve.
