Palehound - If You Met Her

Palehound - If You Met Her


While 2017 isn't a great year for say, humanity, at least we can curl up in our little corner of the world with some of the best new music that has been released in a while. Boston's Palehound, fronted by the fiercest of fierce Ellen Kempner, are leading the charge with the announcement of their sophomore album A Place I'll Always Go. The record is, true to form, a deeply personal collection of tales of love and loss told in blissed out fuzz rock imperfect perfection. Following a spring tour with Big Thief and a handful of summer headlining dates which include a record release show in Boston, Palehound will kick off a national tour with the stellar Waxahatchee in August. 

Regarding the newly released video for single "If You Met Her," Kempner said:

"I wrote this song on the one year anniversary of my close friends passing. It addresses the experience of grief I had following losing her, including feelings of guilt and being reminded of her everywhere I would go.” shares Ellen. “I wrote it like a letter, reminiscing over times we'd spent together and telling her about how I'd fallen in love. The teens at Raw Art Works (part of the Boston arts non-profit Raw Art Works (RAW)) put a visual to my song that I feel perfectly reflects the content and I was absolutely astounded at how professional and amazing they were to work with.“

Take an even deeper dive into Kempner's creative mind in her recent Rookie Interview, and pick up A Place I'll Always Go on June 16th via Polyvinyl.  Tour dates below.
