The pair just released their critically acclaimed debut album, Doomin’ Sun, and celebrated its release with a massive week. First, the band raised about $10,000 for Seeding Sovereignty with their curated virtual festival and telethon Doomin’ Sun Fest, which featured Tegan & Sara, Courtney Barnett, Benjamin Gibbard, Big Freedia, Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief), Jeff Tweedy, Japanese Breakfast, Tank And The Bangas and a full-album concert performance from Bachelor. Then, the duo performed “Back Of My Hand” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #PlayAtHome Online Series.
Written and recorded in Topanga, CA over the course of two weeks in January of 2020, pre-pandemic, Doomin’ Sun finds Kempner and Duterte hybridizing their individual songwriting talents, producing a collection that slips between moods with ease and showcases their lyrical prowess.
While the album features collaborations with the likes of Big Thief’s Buck Meek and James Krivchenia, as well as Duterte’s partner and Routine-counterpart Annie Truscott of Chastity Belt, the record was largely made by the two musicians in isolation as a fitting precursor to the forthcoming year.
Creating the space to explore significant themes from queerness to climate change, the collection also finds Bachelor experiencing pure, unadulterated joy: the kind of joy that can only come from creating, laughing, and having a ridiculous amount of fun with a close friend.
