San Diego, California indie-pop artist Somme recently dropped her latest single and music video for “Ordinary Fools”. This is in support of her upcoming, debut self-titled EP releasing May 4, 2018.
“I started this song on a train when I was looking back on a relationship that I had wished for a while would come to fruition but never did. When I hear the intro synth sounds I remember being on that train in upstate New York in Mid October when all the leaves were changing. The video concept originally started as a separate entity from the song, but now I feel the same watching the video as I first did on that train.” – Somme
Somme, known outside her moniker as Jordan Cantor, got her start in music at the young age of 6 when she taught herself guitar, and soon-after graduated to songwriting and mastering other instruments. Following a stint at The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU, she relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music.
Drawing inspiration from idols like Robyn, Fleetwood Mac and Lorde, Jordan entered the studio in 2017 to record her debut, self-titled EP. After a year and a half of writing and recording, she emerged, fully embracing her new identity Somme, with a stunningly beautiful record that melds mesmerizing pop hooks, soul-gripping vocals and moody electronics.
