Serving up bouncy punk-pop that sounds a little like a cheerier take on their former band Mika Miko, Bleached features sisters Jennifer and Jessica Clavin. After Mika Miko disbanded in 2009, Jennifer took a break from performing music, although she and Jessica continued to write songs together. She moved to New York to pursue her education in fashion design, then spent a stint as Cold Cave’s keyboardist and backing vocalist in 2010 and 2011. Meanwhile, Jessica remained in the Clavins’ home turf of Los Angeles, playing with the band the Cold Showers. When Jessica returned to L.A., the sisters began to work in earnest on Bleached, playing shows with like-minded bands such as Hunx & His Punx in June 2011 and issuing their first single, Francis, on Ooga Booga Records. That July, the Carter single, which featured the blog buzz track “Think of You,” arrived courtesy of Art Fag. By the time their third release, the limited-edition single Searching Through the Past on Suicide Squeeze, arrived that December, Bleached had already adopted a cleaner, more structured sound. The band’s debut album was expected in 2012.
