Bleachers have returned with their new single Modern Girl, the first taste of their highly anticipated forthcoming album. You can watch the Alex Lockett-directed video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HbrymTIbyg
A quintessential Bleachers feel-good anthem, Modern Girl pairs an infectious chorus with booming, energetic instrumentation and is a thrilling indication of the band’s impending new era. The new single was premiered as Clara Amfo’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1 and will feature in the final season of the hit Netflix series Sex Education.
Last month saw Bleachers release Live At Radio City Music Hall, a 21-track live album recorded in 2022 during their sold out headline show at Radio City Music Hall in New York that perfectly showcases the band’s remarkable live prowess.
Described as “anthemic, life affirming pop rock” by the New York Times, Bleachers are fronted by globally celebrated, eight-time Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, musician and producer Jack Antonoff. Releasing their debut album Strange Desire in 2014, the band have built a huge and passionate following across three studio albums, becoming renowned for their impressive live show and infectious camaraderie.
The band’s last album, Take the Sadness out of Saturday Night, took them to new heights, showcasing Antonoff’s immersive songwriting and, as Variety testified, his innate skill at “supersizing personal stories into larger-than-life pop anthems”. The campaign saw the band make their debut on NBC’s infamous Saturday Night Live and saw the single Stop Making This Hurt receive a Best Alternative Video nomination at the 2021 MTV VMAs, reach #1 at Triple A and top ten at Alternative Radio.
Both with Bleachers and as a songwriter and producer Antonoff, who in 2021 was credited by the BBC for having “redefined pop music”, has collaborated with the likes of Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, The 1975, Lorde, St Vincent, Diana Ross, Florence and The Machine, Kevin Abstract and many more.
