After a whirlwind following her debut album, Jay Som is back with a new album announcement and a new single to start things off. The new track “Superbike” takes Som’s sound to a higher plane and makes whatever Anak Ko will ultimately be, seem like too far away from now until its release in late August.
The song opens with a bright and sunny guitar that feels like sunshine hitting your face for the first time after a cold Winter. With her signature vocals mixed alongside the instrumentation, the song has a soft edge with upbeat melody that just sticks in your head. The hook in the vocals is pure magic, and the video showing a week in Joshua Tree is just as refreshing as the song itself.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube, the song van be streamed on all streaming services and Anak Ko can be pre-ordered directly from Polyvinyl Records before its release on August 23. Jay Som will tour in support of the album beginning July 20 in Chicago, IL at Pitchfork Music Festival until September 19 in Portland, OR at Doug Fir Lounge. Her complete tour schedule can be accessed here.
