The night of August 22nd brought me to the small art gallery space, Sonos Studio, for a show by Los Angeles punk band, Bleached.
In addition to providing attendees with an intimate performance, along with their other two band members, Jennifer and Jessie Clavin sat down for a Q&A as well.
On the heels of three well-received singles comes Ride Your Heart, the bombastic debut album by Bleached. The sisters 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.
With a noticeable garage-rock and punk feel, the Clavin sisters brought their audience to live with some serious head bobbing and foot tapping. Towards the end of their set, a small mosh pit even developed.
Bleached put on an awesome show and are definitely going to be a band I’ll be keeping tabs on for future shows and more rad music!
