today finds melina duterte, known for her work as jay som, revisiting material from the recording sessions that yielded last year’s excellent full-length, everybody works.  two songs from those sessions that didn’t land on the album, “pirouette” and “o.k., meet me underwater,” have been packaged together as a 7″ single, due out january 26th via polyvinyl records.

“pirouette,” the single’s a-side, is a delightfully crunchy slice of pop, filtered through duterte’s signature lyrical lens and capped off with a woozy ostinato of a coda.  take a listen below.
