Jay Som’s Melina Duterte and Palehound’s Ellen Kempner has shared their latest single as Bachelor, “Sick of Spiraling.”
The relaxed new tune comes packed with dreamy guitar lines and smooth drums, as catchy vocals take the lead. “Sick of Spiraling” follows the release of their debut track “Anything At All” and “Stay in the Car.”
“‘Sick of Spiraling’ is one of the last songs we wrote and recorded together in Topanga,” Bachelor explain of the track. “Both of us initially tried to play drums on the song but the groove wasn’t right so we enlisted help from James Krivchenia. He came over for a day and drummed on a few songs on the record, he really brought this song to life with his unique style. Ellen had the riff in her voice memos for a while, and had originally imagined it as a slow kinda melancholic song. Once we got together and listened back to the riff we heard it a whole new way as an upbeat driving song. After that Ellen wrote lyrics inspired by driving on tour and the rush and anxiety of being completely untethered and unprotected on the open road.”
