Bachelor have released “I See It Now,” the track is lifted off their current release Doomin’ Sun, now out via Polyvinyl. They share: “Back in January when Bachelor was filming our music videos for Doomin Sun, we found ourselves with a day to kill at Ellen’s house in Poughkeepsie. Ellen had assembled a small recording setup in her basement that she was mystified by and still figuring out how to work so we decided to record a song to mess around with the gear. Melina wrote the creepy intro keyboard part and we built the song from there. What came was “I See It Now”, a kind of lethargic muse on sexual regret and insecurity.”
Bachelor rang in their release week with a The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #PlayAtHome performance and raised about $10,000 for Seeding Sovereignty with their curated Doomin’ Sun Fest, a free festival and telethon celebrating climate, community and compassion. “Best of Doomin’ Sun Fest” YouTube playlist featuring performances by Tegan & Sara, Benjamin Gibbard, Frankie Cosmos and more + a full-album concert performance from Bachelor, is now available to view. For more info or to donate.
Doomin’ Sun finds Ellen Kempner (Palehound) and Jay Som’s Melina Dutert hybridizing their individual songwriting talents, producing a collection that slips between moods with ease and showcases their lyrical prowess. While the album features collaborations with the likes of Big Thief’s Buck Meek and James Krivchenia, as well as Duterte’s partner and Routine-counterpart Annie Truscott of Chastity Belt, the record was largely made by the two musicians in isolation as a fitting precursor to the forthcoming year. Creating the space to explore significant themes from queerness to climate change.
