Bleached - Flipside

1. Who are Bleached?

Bleached are a punk rock band from Los Angeles, California. They started in 2010 and have two albums. Flipside (Feb’17) is the second single from the E.P. Can You Deal? (March’17). 

2. What kind of tune is Flipside?

Flipside rides a solid punk riff for all its worth. Dreamy harmonies encourage flights of fancy and there are some grunge elements to flesh the song out. A good tune from a great band.

3. Who do Bleached sound like? 

Best Coast, La Sera and Tacocat.

4. What have the press said about Flipside

“Sunbaked pop-punk” – Spin. 

“A 90’s alt-rock throwback with power-pop bona fides” – Stereogram. 

“Pleasantly sentimental” – Consequence Of Sound. 

5. Which bands inspired Bleached?

Some of their influences are The Gun Club, Johnny Thunders, The Misfits, Joan Jett and Generation X. 

6. Why should I give Flipside a listen? 

Because you love a punk riff. Because you like Riot Grrrl bands.

7. What are Bleached's best songs? 

Wednesday Night Melody is fat rock riffs, Keep On Keepin' On brings the grunge to the table; but don't over look the sixties garage pop of For The Feel. 

8. Any more words?

Bleached are on tour this summer supporting The Damned.

“Standing up against the walls,
Rolling your eyes, every song”

Dude York are a power pop/punk band from Seattle, Washington. They sound like Tacocat and Hole. Dude York are influenced by Weezer and The Misfits. Tonight is a single from their second album Sincerely (Feb'17).  Tonight is a hard charging song about telling someone to kiss off. 

“Let’s wrap this up,
There’s somewhere I have to be tonight”
