Kermit Obert blooms after his band's breakup on "K.O." - listen to "Good Enough"

Good Enough by 23 year old singer-songwriter Kermit Obert from Lawndale, California plods steadily and forlornly on chunky acoustic down strokes. Electric guitar picks pearls and Oberts vox cries forward. It feels a bit like a sonic march, maybe a funeral dirge of sorts. The atmosphere has an Elliot Smith-esque type of sadcore but the melodies (at times) feels hopeful too. 
After the break up of his punk band "Noyes" he spent a year writing in his room resulting in his debut solo album "K.O" released with KillPop records in 2018 both digitally and on 12" vinyl.
