Jay Som announces debut album Everybody Works

16 January 2017, 17:01 | Written by Laurence Day

San Francisco Bay Area multi-instrumentalist Jay Som announces her debut record Everybody Works and shares lead single "The Bus Song".

The single is bright and infectious, with warm bouts of blankety fuzz in the chorus and gleaming guitars around every bend. Som's charm shines through on "The Bus Song", keeping you enchanted from start to end.

Jay Som - aka Melina Duterte - gathered a bunch of early material together for her Turn Into collection last year, but this'll be her "proper" debut.

The entire thing was written, recorded, performed, and produced by Duterte ("save a few backing vocals") over three weeks in her bedroom studio.

Everybody Works is out 10 March via Double Denim.
