And they’re unleashing new single ‘Stay in the Car’ to celebrate.

After introducing their new Bachelor project with last month’s debut single ‘Anything At All’, Jay Som and Palehound have now announced that they’ll be releasing Bachelor’s debut album ‘Doomin’ Sun’ on 28th May via Lucky Number!

Unleashing new track ‘Stay In The Car’ to celebrate, Palehound’s Ellen Kempner says, “I wrote the lyrics to ‘Stay In the Car’ back in December of 2019 when I was in Florida for my partner’s top surgery. I had run out one afternoon, post op, while he was healing to grab lunch for us and as I was gathering my stuff in the parking lot, a big car pulled up and this absolutely beautiful woman got out. She was dressed all in red, dripping with jewelry and had the most wild fiery mane I’d ever seen. She was yelling at the man behind the wheel asking him what he wanted from the store and I wished I was that man. I wanted to be a part of her life, her best friend, her driver, whatever she wanted me to be. I was completely mesmerized.”

Jay Som’s Melina Duterte adds, “We wanted this song to be a visceral listening experience, inspired by The Pixies and The Breeders. For the music video, we worked on a two-day shoot with Haoyan of America in Poughkeepsie in extremely cold weather. We all collaborated on the idea that our friendship should be portrayed in a fun and stylish way. Haoyan captured that energy in his own unique and creative lens through his collection of 80s/90s/00s props and toys, CGI, and anything car-themed.”
