Bay Area SOTW: Jay Som – “Baybee”

Jay Som

Melina Duterte (aka Jay Som) shared a video for her new single “Baybee,” off her upcoming full-length album, Everybody Works, today, via Stereogum.  Whereas “The Bus Song” and “1 Billion Dogs” were guitar hook heavy and very fuzzy, Duterte’s smooth, funk pop single mellows things out. The video is seductive and smitten with nostalgia, channeling European ski vacation vibes, ushanka hats, 80’s ski suits, and all. Jay Som’s upcoming record is every bit DIY as it is polished, the multi instrumentalist recorded the LP in its entirety in her bedroom at her Bay Area home, much like her EP Turn Into.

Everybody Works is out March 10 via Polyvinyl.
