I was in a writing drought for the longest time but as soon as I heard Gidi’s “Damned” it was like the floodgates were opened. Big thanks to ATMCG for making sure I was aware of it so now I have to return the favor because “Damned” is seriously a track you do not want to miss.
Based out of LA, but originally from Baltimore Maryland, Gidi details the intricacies of maintaining love and trust within an intimate relationship on this stand-alone pop masterpiece. To Gidi, “Damned” is a form of catharsis as he unleashes all emotions pent up from a previously ended relationship through meticulous songwriting. And with gorgeous Chloe George background vocals peppered throughout and splendid contributions from a cast of other talented LA folk, this one is simply beautiful.
“Damned” is made up of beautiful harmonies accompanied by a feature from Jonah Mutono carefully laid over an emotional instrumental, putting every pop song made this year to shame. “Damned” is a super exciting release from Gidi that leaves us in great anticipation for what he has in store for the future.
