The question being asked is Can you deal with women making music? Bleached follows up 2016′s acclaimed Welcome To The Worms. For whatever reason, I didn’t connect with that release when it came out. So when they announced his EP, it was met with very little fanfare on my part. Well, it is connecting now. The EP is outstanding and I’ve been making amends with Welcome To The Worms.
The LA based punk band rocks and to that point, the title track of EP deals with that. They were tired of being pigeon-holed or labeled due to them being fronted by females. As someone who spent a good chunk of the day watching the ladies rock at the She Shreds party at SXSW, I could care less who’s fronting the band; as long as it’s good. And this is excellent. So my answer is yes, I can deal.
I caught one of their many sets down in Austin and it was fantastic. Day was on the cusp of turning to night, I had a few cocktails in me and the amps were turned up loud.
