BACHELOR – ” Doomin Sun “

Posted: May 28, 2021 in MUSIC

The big day is finally here, we can’t believe it. As some of you may have heard, we — Melina from Jay Som and Ellen from Palehound — have a new project together, and we finally get to share it with you!

We’ve been dear friends and huge fans of each other for years and were lucky enough to get to work together in January 2020 before quarantine. It’s been about a year and a half since we recorded these songs and sitting on them for this long has been a challenge to say the least.

We originally planned to release these last summer, but because of Covid we put it off and we’re so glad we did. That extra time gave us the opportunity to treat this album with care and focus that can sometimes get lost in a busy touring schedule. Though the recording and writing process was only a few weeks long, we have put countless hours into mixing/mastering/producing these songs and we are very proud of them.

When we listen back to Doomin’ Sun, we are listening to an earlier version of our friendship, a friendship that has since grown tremendously since we’ve had to be apart from each other for so long and then immediately put ourselves out there into the world. Going from a year of not being perceived by anyone to a full on press cycle is a whirlwind and has been a mindfuck for us both but it’s been a beautiful experience as we have felt incredibly supported by our many amazing team members and fans. We want more than anything for this record to remind you that your friends are your family, that friend love is just as important as romantic love, and that every connection you have to another person is sacred. We feel connected to all of you and are very grateful to have this chance to share ourselves with you. Can’t wait to see ya’ll on the road! Love, Ellen and Melina

“Back Of My Hand” is the final single from Bachelor (Jay Som & Palehound)’s debut full-length ‘Doomin’ Sun’, out May 28th on Polyvinyl Records, Lucky Number, and Milk! Records.
