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.

Love for Ride Your Heart

“An album as classic as its faultless ‘Thelma & Louise’-ian artwork, the universal themes of ‘Ride Your Heart’ manage to transcend the dated California girl stereotype while knowingly plugging into who still makes the myth so appealing.”NME

“Drawing on powerpop, new wave and girl group harmonies, this record is full of engaging tunes, doe-eyed dedications and wry witticisms….it’s like being a kid again and catching the first breeze that really whistles through you, tingling the skin; that really makes you question the external forces of the world, be they incidental to your daily existence or just generally driving it.”The Line Of Best Fit

“Bleached write the kind of love songs that make you want to pack up and move to California….They turn short-term heartache and temporary daydreams into breezy, economic, instantly re-playable pop-punk.” The Fader

LYRICS :: DEAD IN YOUR HEAD

Time to think about what you lost
Cuz you know baby it’s gonna hit you hard.
Time to figure out where it all went wrong
Cuz you know baby it’s gonna hit you so hard.
So hard.

I never wanted to lose the boy I love the most.
I never wanted to hurt the boy I love the most.

When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?

Time to think about what you want
Cuz you know maybe it’s our timing that was off.
Time to figure out where it all went wrong
Cuz you know baby it’s gonna hit you so hard.
So hard.

I never wanted to lose the boy I love the most.
I never wanted to hurt the boy I love the most.

When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you close your eyes at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you close your eyes at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
