Som Unveil Doom Cover of Billie Eilish’s “Everything I Wanted”
Doom-pop outfit Som have unveiled a characteristically gloomy and atmospheric cover of pop artist Billie Eilish’s “Everything I Wanted.” While many bands of all genres tackled her 2019 smash “Bad Guy,” this is the first such cover we can recall from a higher profile metal band of another of Eilish’s songs.
The band comments:
“We’ve been obsessed with this song since it came out. It’s incredible how something so tender and gentle can also be a total gut-punch. It’s got these inescapable melodies that wash over you with both awe-inspiring sadness and a grounding feeling of hope. And that kinda makes it a perfect fit with the Som aesthetic — it’s intoxicating and powerful and it really spans the emotional gamut.
“We want to really honor this song as best we can. It felt like all I could do to be closer to this song was to bring it to the guys and do a version of it that brings out the heaviness that we feel listening to the original.”

Som’s latest EP, Awake, came out earlier this year along with an entertaining little video game.
