Figured this was around the corner after Bleached released a new track a few weeks back and I’m ready for it. Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough? will see the light of day on July 12 via the fine folks at Dead Oceans. Here’s some info from the PR team.

Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough? is what Jennifer Clavin asked herself when she hit a turning point in her life. It’s also the title of the new Bleached record, out July 12th via Dead Oceans, and Jessie and Jennifer Clavin’s first LP written from a place of sobriety. That newfound perspective serves as the guiding force in every corner of its sound, yielding a courageous, honest, and sonically ambitious album. Throughout, the Clavins radiate the power and bravery of facing addiction, of letting go of the past and becoming open to a radically different future of self-love, acceptance, and newfound honesty.

Bleached – the Los Angeles-based rock duo of sisters Jessica and Jennifer Clavin – return with a new single. Say what you want about SXSW but that’s where my opinion about Bleached turned. Now I’m all in and this new track is literally, music to my ears. Here’s some more info from the PR team.

“Shitty Ballet” is the first studio work from the Clavins relying heavily on acoustic guitars. Written in just a few hours in a deluge of heartbreak, the striking emotion of the demo stuck. They stayed true to its stripped-down original, starting off with minimal instrumentation before bursting through with a full band. The accompanying one shot video, directed by Giraffe Studios, shows the Clavins awash in soft, violet-tinted light, performing as masked ballet dancers, young and old, twirl alongside them.
