Dom is one of the great instances when the art and the artist reflect each other perfectly. The trio consists of Erik, Bobby K, and front man Dom. In a Pitchfork interview these funny and playful guys choose to not give up their last names because of a significant amount of debt (student loans, taxes, etc.) they had accumulated. Good thing Dom chooses to turn to fun and accessible sythn-pop for coping, because the end result is wonderful.

Dom describes “Living in America” as, “…sort of facetious. What I really wanted to do was make a ‘YMCA’ -type track that I would be best known for but forever hate myself for.” Jokes ensue about politicians using the chorus as a campaign slogan. It isn’t hard to picture the song catching on. The background beat flows perfectly with Dom’s enthusiastic yet cool delivery, and the carefree attitude of the song is perfect for the turn from spring to summer. “Burn Bridges” is the more cool and collected side of Dom. After a couple of listens the song’s carefree motif of burning bridges, making islands, forgiving, and forgetting is an easy spirit-lifter.
