New Music: Bleachers - Rollercoaster
Until 5 months ago, it seemed Bleachers front-man Jack Antonoff was coasting comfortably under the radar as lead guitarist of recent chart-toppers, indie rock band Fun. as well as other half to HBO Girls’ curator Lena Dunham. However, Antonoff had, in fact, been secretly working on a side project in the form of Bleachers. Though presented as a band, it is truly Antonoff’s solo escapade, written and recorded almost solely by him.
There is something very 80’s about this record—this song in particular, melded with some very experimental audio samples and distortion.
Bleachers’ debut album ‘Strange Desire’ was released on July 15th 2014 and is enjoying moderate success. The album is a solid, consistently good piece with a few stand out tracks such as the one above, as well as songs including surprising features like Grimes and Yoko Ono.
Give Strange Desire a go, it’s definitely worth your time.
