Palehound – “See A Light”

Last spring, Palehound released a really great album, Black Friday — we named it our Album Of The Week — and last fall they put out a digital 7″ featuring an original song, “Your Boyfriend’s Gun,” and a cover of Yo La Tengo’s “Autumn Sweater.” They also went out on a pretty big tour supporting Big Thief, and they’re about to embark on another big tour, this time with Adult Mom.

Today, the Ellen Kempner-led Boston band are sharing a new one-off, “See A Light,” a beautifully still track about a long-term relationship that’s built around a lovely picture of writing their name on a foggy window. “You see a light in me/ Got me acting like my parents,” Kempner sings. “Staying in, sober and embarrassed/ You love me in the light of the TV.”

“‘See A Light’ is about how love ages and the ways in which you have to keep up with yourself to make it work,” Kempner said in a statement. “I recorded and mixed this song myself which was a really cool and empowering experience, I’m always trying to learn more.”
