Simon Doom, the project from MGMT bassist Simon O'Connor, is now a four-piece rock outfit that includes Jim Caroll, William Flynn, and Brandon Collins. We're ecstatic to premiere the music video for their song Lucifer The Light Bearer. Wellness is important to the undead, too!

There's a new batch'a lovable weirdos in town, and they go by Simon Doom. Led by frontman (and MGMT bassist), Simon O'Connor, the project recently evolved from a one-man show to a full band, rounded out by Brooklyn's music scene's elite—Jim Caroll, William Flynn, and Brandon Collins. Now a four-piece, the garage-psych rockers are recording and releasing new tunes, which are simply put, rad AF.

Since it dropped on Tuesday, their new Miles Robinson-produced single, "Lucifer the Light Bearer" strikes the perfect balance between sonically sweet and lyrically ominous. Of the track, O'Connor said, "We really created the song from scratch as a band and Miles’ approach to recording was vastly different than anyone who I had worked with in the past. He brought out the clarity of the instruments and my voice in a way that I never had the guts to before."

Now, we're ecstatic to premiere the music video for the song, which was directed by acclaimed visual artists Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe. Featuring a gaggle of health-conscious zombies (yes, there's juicing and downward-facing dogs), the vid is every bit as out there as we'd hoped it'd be. "I have been a huge fan of Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe's work for a long time, and was very excited to get to know them," O'Connor said. "We have collaborated in the past, and when they expressed interest in making a video for this song I couldn’t have been happier."
