Bleached

On the heels of three well-received singles comes Ride Your Heart, the bombastic debut album by LA band Bleached. Sisters Jennifer and Jessie Clavin match their ability to blend a mix of freewheeling '77 punk with vintage sunny Southern California melodic rock and roll; creating blindingly bright hooks and dark heartfelt lyrics about love, loss, and the crazy fun moments in between. That's the goal: the sugary and sour, repurposed by two aggressively harmonic musicians and songwriters. Their first single "Next Stop" epitomizes this movement - fun, raw, adventurous and free. Tossing you out onto the dance floor, hair mussed from make-outs, cigarette still dangling from your fingertips. Raised up deep in the San Fernando Valley, their suburban isolation nurtured the girls creativity, as they started making their own music at a young age. Sneaking into punk shows over the hill in Hollywood, they grew up to become teenaged underground staples at all-ages Downtown DIY venue, The Smell. "Me and Jen were punk kids who weren't taught how to play instruments," says Jessie. We taught ourselves how to play, out in the garage." Eventually signing to Kill Rock Stars and Post Present Medium, their all-girl punk band Mika Miko drew international acclaim, landing slots on tours with No Age, Black Lips, and The Gossip.

EP ANNOUNCE // Bleached Share 7″ EP ‘For The Feel’ Details, Listen To Title Track, Tour This Summer



Summer is her again which means Bleached is back with a new 7″ EP called For The Feel coming out digitally July 22nd / physically September 16th on Dead Oceans. You can listen to the title track from the EP via Stereogum premiere above or on Soundcloud / YouTube.

Pre-order the EP via SC Distribution, iTunes, or your local record store.

From the band, “For The Feel is a song we originally wrote for our full length but it didn’t sound right once recorded so we held off on putting it on the record. Finally when it came down to recording it again we were really inspired by the sound of The Kinks, we even used The Kinks amp. I’m really glad we waited to release this song because now it’s perfect”

See Bleached on tour this summer playing next in LA at Echoplex.
