On Thursday, October 17th, LA-based musician Jay Som will be bringing her intimate, dream pop sound to the High Noon Saloon. Six months after supporting Mitski at the Sylvee, Melina Mae Muertes, who performs under Jay Som, will be back with new tunes off of her new album, Anak Ko. On her newest release, Som retains her authentic style of blending indie, electronic, and pop but adds a matured texture of ambiguity to her sound by collaborating with members from Vagabon, Chastity Belt and Boy Scouts and taking a step back from exclusively producing her music independently to bring a sense of camaraderie and liveliness to her record. 

From the Tagoloan album title translating to “my child,” Jay Som confronts the realities of coming to terms with growing up and being a full-fledged adult. At 25, Jay Som’s latest record allows her to reflect on her past, with nostalgic melodies and contemplative lyrics letting the listener get a glimpse into her world. 

Jay Som’s refreshing presence and sound is set to indulge Madison starting at 8:00 PM, with doors opening at 7:00 PM, and the indie-country band Boy Scouts opening for her.
