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.

WATCH // Bleached “Next Stop” Video at Vogue

Bleached are back at it! Keeping with their fashion streak, the girls premiered their brand new video for “Next Stop” at Vogue. Directed by Lana Kim, the video stars both Jennifer and Jessica livin’ life and lovin’ (motorcycle rides and dance parties included). You can check out the black and white montage above.

“And become melodic they did. That’s the thing about bands made of siblings—when they nail a musical collaboration, nothing else can beat it.” – VOGUE

“Next Stop” is the first single off of Bleached’s debut album, Ride Your Heart. We’ll have pre-order details for that album imminently, so stay tuned! Until then, check out their spring/summer tour!
