JAY SOM – ” O.K., Meet Me Underwater “

Indie-pop powerhouse Melina Duterte, aka Jay Som, shared more new music this week via Pirouette, a 7-inch featuring outtakes from the “Everybody Works” sessions. She also released the b-side, a lovely jam titled “O.K., Meet Me Underwater.” It opens with a cascading Duterte guitar line that soon drops away, supplanted by her hushed vocals, steady bass and show-stealing percussion. The song transforms in unpredictable and exciting ways, rippling and changing like liquid. “If you’re feeling okay, meet me underwater,” Duterte urges, an invitation to immersion.

The A-side, “Pirouette,” an upbeat rock number with a great breakdown that rides on dreamy guitar arpeggios, has already been available . With the single’s official release Friday, the B-side, “O.K., Meet Me Underwater,” is now out too. The track features a similarly beautiful, but more characteristically laid-back groove, and works as a great compliment to “Pirouette.”
