Palehound returns with "Killer," listen now courtesy of NPR's All Songs Considered + Cherry Glazerr tour begins tonight
Posted 02/19/2019

Quite frankly, this song is about the murderous fantasies I have about all of the people who have abused my friends and how they continue to live their lives unpunished.


Oh, hell yes. Fierce vocalist and creative force, Palehound aka Ellen Kempner has shared new single "Killer" today via NPR's All Songs Considered

"Over the past five years, Palehound's Ellen Kempner has established herself as a prolific and distinguished voice in indie rock, winning over fans with her razor-sharp technique and poignant lyricism."

Another powerful one two punch of Ellen's strength and vulnerability, "Killer" is a promise of more new music to come. The track coincides with the launch of Palehound's North American tour dates supporting Cherry Glazerr, beginning tonight in South Burlington, Vermont.

Palehound’s last release, the critically acclaimed A Place I’ll Always Go arrived in 2017. The album received glowing accolades from The New York Times, Pitchfork, FADER, and NYLON, as well as gracing many Best-of lists including Rob Sheffield’s Rolling Stone Top 20 Albums, Stereogum’s 50 Best Albums of 2017 and Vulture’s Best New Albums. When she wasn’t in the studio, Kempner has toured tirelessly since the release of A Place I’ll Always Go, sharing stages with Big Thief, Jay Som, Mitski, M Ward, Weaves, Courtney Barnett, Waxahatchee, Japanese Breakfast and more.
