About this item

The Bleachés, pronounced ‘bleeshays’, formed in Manchester in 2016. One of their early shows were described by The Afterword as “Clearly in thrall to the Brian Jonestown Massacre, they’re a bit ramshackle but in a good way... they get a proper psychedelic, garagey racket going and they whip up some nice choppy guitar riffs that should stand them in good stead. I like them.” After supporting a number of touring bands such as Os Mutantes, Elephant Stone, Tracy Bryant and Flyying Colours, The Bleachés recorded and released their debut EP – “Easter Island” digitally in May 2018. The six track EP was recorded across two studios in Manchester by two friends Billy Morley & Alex Burnett-Scott. The tracks blend between hazy, melodic jams to upbeat garage rock, with Chloe’s soothing vocals entwined throughout. Easter Island was reviewed by Local Sound Focus shortly after its release: “There are hints of West Coast psychedelic pop, psych, a haze of dream pop, hints of 4AD bands like the Cocteau Twins, bits of strange freaky 60s European pop and that sort of post rave slightly fuzzy danceable rock… The best I can do is to say that if you like music made with care, music that takes you to a great place, music with a groove, music that takes a whole load of influences and puts them together in a way you’ve not heard before, then try this, you won’t be disappointed.”

STAFF COMMENTS

Mine says: Having seen almost every single gig they've played since they started out 2 years ago you might think that I am biased but let me tell you that these guys and gal have a seriously addictive sound. Easter Island is a collection of dreamy and hazy psych pop songs that is sure to sweeten your summer! RIYL: Holy Wave, Allah-Las, La Luz
