Bleached are the sibling duo of Jessie and Jennifer Clavin, who after impressing last year with their wonderful debut album, Ride Your Heart, are back with a new EP.
The new EP, For The Feel, is fronted by the song of the same name and was originally intended for last year’s LP, but instead it’s the lead track on a new EP. Apparently inspired by the sound of The Kinks, and recorded using The Kinks’ amp, ‘For The Feel, is quintessentially a ‘Bleached’ jam; with summery sun-kissed ’60s garage meets punk-rock, with a breezy jangle pop side. Yet another supremely tuneful and absolutely marvellous track from California duo, perfect for the warmer weather and sunshine of the summer months. And quickly before this is wrapped up. My gaze was was initially drawn to Bleached’s wonderful debut by the equally marvellous blog, Dukla Prague Away Kit, but for whatever reason time was never found to bestow deserved lavish praise upon their record. Needless to say you should check it out, if you haven’t already of course.
The EP will be released digitally on July 22nd, followed by a 7-inch single on September 16th via Dead Oceans. For now, sit back, relax and enjoy their latest single. (Stream Ride Your Heart on Spotify)
