Los Angeles band Bleached – the punk band lead by sisters Jennifer and Jessica Clavin — are set to release the Can You Deal? EP on March 3 through Dead Oceans. Recorded in the midst of a break between months of touring, the EP captures the raw energy the band had been experiencing on stage. After sharing the title track “Can You Deal?” which dealt with the band’s frustrations with gender being used to define their music and the reductive habit of referring to them and others as “girl bands,” Bleached now present “Flipside”. Jennifer Clavin describes the song below.

“I was thinking about the relationship we have with an album or a song and how we connect them to what is happening in our lives, like falling in love, being fascinated by a new friend, or some kind of pivotal moment in life corresponding with the record I’m listening to. Once the comedown of that time hits I can’t even listen to that record without thinking about that time or that person. Albums are the soundtrack to our lives, and this song is an ode to the nostalgia certain albums bring.”

As previously announced, Jennifer Clavin is publishing the limited edition “Can You Deal?” Zine, a collection of shared experiences on this subject through essay, visual art, poetry, lyrics and more from artists. Newly added contributors include JD Samson, Bethany Cosentino (Best Coast), Cassie Ramone (Vivian Girls), Suzy Gardner and Donita Sparks (L7), Shannon Funchess (Light Asylum), Jenny Eliscu, and more.

Both the “Can You Deal?” EP and Zine are available for pre-order now. Bleached will tour North America supporting The Damned this spring.
