T. Soomian Just Wants, “Simple Pleasures”

by The Alchemist

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Soomian developed his eclectic musical palate early in his childhood. With sonic influences from all over the world and infectious R&B hooks all 90s kids can relate to, you can begin to unravel the Soomian sound.


His newest track is called, “Simple Pleasures” and it is a great song to come out during quarantine. It has some qualities that reminds us of Kevin Parker of Tame Impala, the way that he combines synths and unique basslines with energetic drums.  This is the song we needed to hear today!

When asking T. Soomian about the song he says the following:


“The title says it all! In these wild times, I’m trying to bring a little light into the world. The people hear plenty of negative and it’s my duty to make people smile and dance and daydream a little.”


Check out the track below, and you can find it on our playlist, “Ultimate Indie Vibes.
