Palehound Unmasks Self-Love w/ “Worthy” Video | Tour w/ Big Thief | LP Out 6/7 on Polyvinyl

Today, Boston-based trio Palehound have unveiled a new song/video “Worthy” off their forthcoming album via PAPER Magazine. With “Worthy,” prolific singer/songwriter Ellen Kempner continues to imbue her thoughtful narrative voice on the much-anticipated album Black Friday due out June 7 onPolyvinyl Record Co. It speaks to the challenge of navigating self-confidence issues in relationships, and delicately showcases Kempner’s lyrical finesse (“And I’ve won over your mother, darling/And I’ve won over your sister too/And I won over your father, darling/And I still don’t feel worthy of you”).

Detailed by Kempner, the song is “about feeling unworthy of love even within a relationship. It’s about years of being conditioned to hate my body and the shock of finding someone who isn’t telling me to change. Choosing to believe the person who believes in you is a wild journey especially when it correlates with ebb and flow of a partnership. The video, directed by Robert Kolodny, is a continuation of the video for “Aaron”. It’s the same characters but in this one I am mask-less and talking my way towards my companion, our shrinking distance represented by a string that ties us together.“

Watch Worthy Video HERE.

Palehound is set to continue her ascent as one of the most compelling voices in indie rock and will follow the release of the new album wit h a North American Tour alongside Big Thief. Be sure to catch Palehound’s electrifying live show coming to a city near you! Tour dates below and HERE.
