Bleached

I create music and art because I need to. To express, to bond, to reconcile, and to connect. And to use my voice. To have it received with such a generic labeling as "girl band" and consistently referenced as "female fronted" is insulting and reductive. The title track to this EP, "Can You Deal?" is about this experience. Last year we released a deeply personal full length album titled Welcome The Worms. It was a record about being in an emotionally abusive relationship. It was a record about getting spun out on drugs and alcohol. It was a record about totally losing myself in order to find myself. It was also our most ambitious body of work yet, with guitar work and guitar sounds and production we had only dreamed of until then. And yet to this day I am still fielding interview questions that have more to do with my gender than with the art I am creating. Somehow the conversation usually derails into some variation of the following question: "What is it like to be a girl in a rock band?". And the ensuing story will define us based on our sex. Why is gender pointed out in nearly all coverage of our band? Labeling me as a woman in a band just puts me in a box, and doesn’t allow everything else I am to be seen and heard. It's 2017, Can You Deal with women playing rock and roll yet?
-Jennifer Clavin

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.
