Jay Som releases shares video for 'The Bus Song'
Jay Som has unveiled the music video for her latest single, 'The Bus Song.'
Jay Som is the pseudonym of singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Melina Duterte. 'The Bus Song,' which has amassed over 1 million streams to date, is the lead single from her breakout debut album 'Everybody Works.'
Ranging from folk, funkm and chart pop, 'Everybody Works' includes a mix of smooth keyboards, sharp basslines, and an altogether dreamy aesthetic. Carried out with softly-delivered vocals and a dose of distortion, Duterte has subtly expanded the borders of the ever-growing bedroom pop genre.
A music video for ‘The Bus Song’ has been released in partnership with Amazon Originals. Produced by House of Nod, and directed by Duterte's friend and former touring mate Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast, the video finds Duterte, her band members, friends, and fellow Bay Area-area musicians galavanting around their hometown.
Duterte said of the video: "Michelle directing this video was honestly such a dream come true. I'm already honored to call her a friend and past tour mate so watching her in action in another field of work left me awestruck and so inspired. What made the video even more special was filming it in both Oakland and San Francisco with an ensemble cast of friends/non actors. It feels like a time capsule of sorts - a goofy reminiscence and portrayal of the Everybody Works album period."
'Everybody Works' is available now via Polyvinyl.
