Simon Doom

The evolution of Simon Doom begins with the recording of the project's debut EP, Negotiate With The Monkey, which the band's frontman and principal songwriter, Simon O'Connor, recorded with Tommy Stinson of The Replacements in 2015. While O'Connor was often kept busy with other responsibilities, such as his role as bass player in MGMT, he would always find time to tinker with the project without committing to pursuing the project full-time. Then, he became a father and his perspective in music.
