SOM's Cover Of BILLIE EILISH's "Everything I Wanted" Is Perfectly Doomy

An added layer of melancholy to an already crushing song.

Now that Som has signed to Pelagic Records, there's no reason they shouldn't blow up. Their mix of pop sensibilities and overwhelming doom heaviness is not only unique, but extremely well done and super catchy. You can check out Som perfectly marrying the two above via their cover of Billie Eilish's "Everything I Wanted" above.

"We've been obsessed with this song since it came out. It's incredible how something so tender and gentle can also be a total gut-punch," said Som. "It's got these inescapable melodies that wash over you with both awe-inspiring sadness and a grounding feeling of hope. And that kinda makes it a perfect fit with the Som aesthetic — it's intoxicating and powerful and it really spans the emotional gamut.

"We want to really honor this song as best we can. It felt like all I could do to be closer to this song was to bring it to the guys and do a version of it that brings out the heaviness that we feel listening to the original."
