Bachelor, made up of Jay Som’s Melina Duterte and Palehound’s Ellen Kempner, have dropped their debut album Doomin’ Sun.
The LP sees the two longtime friends create 10 clever tracks that combine Kempner’s self-described “journal rock” aesthetic and bedroom pop. Together, Bachelor have given us a collection of hazy guitars, dreamy melodies, soft keys and honeyed vocals.
The two described the making of the album as “pure, unadulterated joy.” Special guests also appear as collaborators on various songs including Buck Meek and James Krivchenia of Big Thief and Annie Truscott from Chastity Belt.
