Two sisters (Jennifer and Katherine O’Neill) plus their old school-mate (Matt Bick) make up London alt- rockers, BLEECH. New to me, they have actually been around a while – long enough to have turned ‘drinking age’ and garnered a reputation that has seen them offered tours with the likes of Wolfmother and The Joy Formidable, and support slots with the Charlatans, The Subways and Pete Doherty to name a few.
This particular track has also been featured on BBC’s ‘Waterloo Road’ drama.
Pretty high profile then … (Jeez! I must have been asleep this past year or so!)
You can view the video for this single below, so there’s no real point in my trying to describe it – which I guess is a bit of a cop-out, simply because the vocal style sounds so familiar, but I’m buggered if I can think who it reminds me of!
Suffice to say, this is the kind of stuff we like here at LOUD HORIZON. It’s loud for a start; it’s up-tempo, has a catchy as hell chorus, is drum-propelled is really just the type of song you would love to hear played live in a dingy, sweaty little intimate venue.
(Did I say it makes me think of a female-fronted Foo Fighters? It does.)
