Jay Som is an impressionist. Taken as a whole, “Baybee,” a highlight from her debut Everybody Works, is a textured, painterly song, that exudes a pleasant warmth. The sounds she crafts here are allowed individual moments to shimmer or wiggle, and every word she utters is full and smooth. Jay Som’s music could loosely be described as shoegaze, but rather than forming one massive sound, each element could exist comfortably on its own. “Baybee,” is a wonderful example of how she can create a fully-fleshed world in just a few minutes. Though the attitude is light and sunny, and the groove fairly funky, thanks to noodly bass and glittering synth, “Baybee” is a song about sacrifice. “If I leave you alone/When you don’t feel right/I know we’ll sink for sure,” she sings. “I’ll play your game once more/If you don’t feel right,” adding a light, but cutting touch to finish the song. “Baybee” paints a hopeful scene, one that is worth soaking up.
