Last week, Oakland-based bedroom pop band Jay Som came through to The Sinclair in support of their newest record, Everybody Works. Though songwriter Melina Duterte plays every instrument in the album, her touring band helped fill out the live sound playing crowd favorites from the latest album such as “The Bus Song” and “Baybee” along with a couple tunes from previous album Turn Into.
Support for the show included Soccer Mommy, New York-based band led by vocalist/guitarist Sophie Allison, who kicked off the show with their self-proclaimed “chill but kinda sad bedroom-pop jams” which proved to be the perfect pairing to Jay Som’s music. Also opening the show was Detriot indie rocker Stef Chura whose debut album Messes came out earlier this year. Her unique but captivating deadpan voice coupled with the band’s fuzzy indie rock sound rounded out what proved to be a stacked bill.
