Bleached/Beach Slang/Hunny

When: Fri., Oct. 21, 9 p.m. 2016

Like bleach strips hair of its color, Los Angeles garage punk band Bleached strips young adult life of expectation and social burden. On their newest release, 2016’s Welcome the Worms, Jennifer and Jessie Clavin skip the temporary color cover-up and find peace by going rogue. After years as a bottlerocket singles band, propelled by explosive garage-style shows and a handful of intermittent yet solid 7-inches, the sisters sat still long enough to make a full-length album, Ride Your Heart, in 2013. Zooming in on the teen-assuaged lifestyle of twenty-somethings still prone to the whims and wills of adolescence, Bleached discovers that maturity doesn’t have to equal a change in habit. Instead, contentment can be found through the acceptance of human weakness and a realization that the Earth’s rotation is constant through it all. Although Welcome to the Worms presents a polished pop that is new for the band, the girls have not cut loose from their grisly rock roots; in fact, a heavy dose of instability is what the record is all about.
