New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Electro-pop artist, Simon XO, is kicking off his solo career with two electrifying singles, "Waiting For Me To Break" / "How Do I Fight It." The double singles fit perfectly into today's mainstream sound, while also bringing enticing elements into the electro-pop scene. Combining synths, tape-loops, electric guitars and more, both singles set him apart from the crowd and are available for download and streaming on digital music outlets worldwide.

"How Do I Fight It" contains unique synths, a powerful drum beat and a catchy chorus that present a perfect platform for Simon XO's clean vocal tone and incredible range. "This song speaks to the two sides of me that are constantly bickering," Simon XO explains. "I think it's easy to stereotype a depressed person and an overly-optimistic person as opposites, but I don't think most people are one or the other." The other single, "Waiting For Me To Break," demonstrates Simon XO's multi-instrumentalist side and his ear for pop production. "I wrote this song while I was going through a break up with a girl that lived two doors down from me in the same apartment building… no joke. I think this song embraces the hate side of the love/hate swings after a long relationship — when things get dug up, taken out of context and twisted around."

Originally from San Diego, Simon XO started playing trombone at a young age. By thirteen, he was blasting it along to Neil Young, Led Zeppelin and Wilco albums. Realizing the dichotomy between his trombone playing and his desire to be a mainstream artist, Simon XO enrolled in USC's Thornton School of Music to hone his craft. Since then, the producer and multi-instrumentalist has created his own version of electro-pop by combining explorative production elements. "Waiting For Me To Break" / "How Do I Fight It" marks his first solo release after years of bouncing around in different bands. With influences ranging from Neil Young to Kendrick Lamar, Simon XO is ready to make his impression on the music industry.

Stream or download "Waiting For Me To Break" / "How Do I Fight" on digital music platforms everywhere now. Keep up with Simon XO by going to and stay tuned for his EP, Covering, set to drop in mid-2018.
