With serrated guitars, synth bass surges, and an explosive chorus, “Over and Out” by San Diego pop-rock wunderkind Simon XO is an incendiary examination of perhaps the most insidious 21st-century ailment: anxiety. “Every dream’s a nightmare,” relates an impassioned Simon before detonating the sweet release of the song’s stadium-singalong hook: “I guess you found me out/I guess it’s over now.” As hopeful electronic chimes twinkle and pitch-shifted vocal shadows menace from the corners of the song, Simon XO inspires with his unique blueprint of melody-heavy catharsis. Authenticity has never felt so empowering.
