Band of the Moment #9

So today we’ve hit a new level, we’re now a truly international blog with our next band of the moment. Coming from Los Angeles, these two sisters of Jennifer and Jessica Clavin, otherwise known as ‘Bleached’ offer up a Californian tinged pop-punk, along with the occasional surf infused rock and roll.

I think any American girl fronted rock band will remind us of Hole, in fact the vocals on Electric Chair sound very reminiscent of Courtney Love. However Bleached do what every simple, guitar band should do – make great music which makes you want to sing and move to, so comparisons to this band or that band are inevitable and shouldn’t really be paid attention to. We first heard of these through the Guardian band of the day blog, whereby they were (unsurprisingly) slated – but as I’ve never read a positive review by that particular author, I assume this must mean Bleached are actually a good band, which they are.

Latest single, ‘Searching Through the Past’ is incredibly catchy, you’ll find it will be stuck in your head for a long time, so I apologise for that. However it’s a good song so you should actually be grateful! While it sounds simple, slightly repetitive even, it does what every good rock and roll song should and makes you listen again and again, it’s a pop-punk song which sounds just like it’s come from California, which it has. It’s my favourite track, followed closely by ‘Think of You’

Unfortunately this is only a quick review as we’re away for the rest of the week, but I had to get Bleached up on the blog now as they’re awesome. If you don’t believe me check out the rest of their stuff here;

As always – comments, opinions etc are encouraged! Let us know what you think.

  1. The first time I saw them was as an opening act for Veronica Falls. They were awesome! We bought the latest single at the show and had the group sign it. If you wAnt to read more about that show or about the three 7" records that they put out check out my blog at
