With her new album Anak Ko coming later this month, Jay Som has been releasing songs from the album that make your heart stir. Each track we’ve heard so far stirs an emotional response, and even her latest release “Nighttime Drive” will remind you of so much while warming your heart in the process.
The song has an up stride, but it also keeps with traditional indie rock chord signatures. The song has the sweetest vocals that pull at your ears while the changes that occur within the track are endearing and tender. The hooks come from a noodled guitar that dances in and off the track, and the violin that comes in takes the song to new places. Though the X-Files inspired appearance of the video should stay with you as long as the intriguing song will.
“Nighttime Drive” is available to stream on all streaming sites, Anak Ko can be pre-ordered ahead of its August 23 release from Polyvinyl Records in multiple bundles and formats. Jay Som will be on tour beginning September 11 at The Rebel Lounge in Phoenix, AZ until November 27 in Dublin, Ireland at The Workmans Club. Their complete tour can be found here.
