Dinked 110 is a special one – a new collaborative indie-rock album from Jay Som and Palehound under the name of Bachelor. Doomin’ Sun is released on May 28th by Lucky Number.
Melina Duterte (Jay Som) and Ellen Kempner (Palehound), were long-time mutual fans, before they finally met in 2017 and decided to try recording together for fun. Several years of back-and-forth remote collaboration led to a 2 week recording session in early 2020 where the pair packed their recording equipment into 2 cars and moved into an Airbnb together with no songs and almost no plans. The result is Doomin’ Sun, an album of gritty indie-pop, embracing a 90s-inspired slacker attitude and shoegaze atmospherics. Fans of Soccer Mommy, Big Thief and Becca Mancari will love this!
