Currently supporting Big Thief on their national tour, Boston trio Palehound is making waves with their latest release, Black Friday. Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, the group’s third full-length album led by singer-songwriter Ellen Kempner centers on a meditation of love, gender, body image, and self-acceptance. The relatability and empowering subject matter imbued with Palehound’s intimate vocals and intricate guitar leave fans exhilarated and inspired, proving Ellen Kempner has established herself as a prolific and distinguished voice in indie rock.
