Biography

Simon Dawes is an indie rock group from Malibu, CA. It was founded when Taylor Goldsmith and Blake Mills met at Malibu High School. This is how they describe themselves: Simon Dawes is a band… named after no one. Though they’re mostly just creaking into being twenty-one (bassist Wiley Gelber is barely 18), you could play their new record Carnivore for anyone and tell the most insane lies about it: reissue of some lost psych-folk-rock artifact, unknown bootleg side project with one Beatle, Kink, Floyd and Who member that never came out for legal reasons. … and they would all be believed. A Malibu zip code might fool you into thinking they basically bought their band pre-made off the Internet, but they’re scholars and diggers and hard workers, taking a dinosaur-rock diet and making it alive and relevant in ways it hasn’t been for millions of years.
