Palehound’s Hazy New Track ‘Room’ Is A Testament To The Beauty Of Queer Love

04.26.17 2 years ago

Boston-based indie rock band Palehound, fronted by the inimitable Ellen Kempner, will release their sophomore record, A Place I’ll Always Go, on June 19. Palehound have already shared the lead single off the album “Flowing Over,” paired with a memorable music video featuring the Boston League of Women’s Wrestlers. Today, they have shared a second single off of A Place I’ll Always Go. Listen to “Room” above.

The new track is as relaxing as it is energetic, bringing you right to the comfort of your own “Room.” Its soft melody coupled with Kempner’s dreamlike vocals rejoice in the pure ecstasy that is experienced with love and the genuine connection that can be formed between two people, in this case two women.

In a statement regarding the track, Kempner told The Fader:

“This song celebrates queer love and the joy of finding a healthy relationship after a long time of heartbreak and shame. For the majority of my life I saw my queerness as a curse and I have recently come to see it for what it is: a huge gift and a source of immeasurable love and happiness for me.”

Palehound will be having an album release party in Cambridge, MA at Sonia on June 16. Get tickets here.

A Place I’ll Always Go is out June 16 via Polyvinyl Records. Pre-order it here.
