Since 2014, Boston band Palehound's nuanced indie rock have earned them professional accolades, particularly with their 2015 release Dry Food. The band is following things up with A Place I'll Always Go, a full-length body of work that was shaped by lead singer (and principal songwriter) Ellen Kempner's experiences involving tragedy, anxiety, and intimacy. Today The FADER is premiering "Room," a melodic, dazed-sounding rock song about an elusive girl and finding love after loss.
"This song celebrates queer love and the joy of finding a healthy relationship after a long time of heartbreak and shame," Kempner told The FADER via email. "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."
