I’ve always enjoyed Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers music. Bleachers new record is due sometime this summer. Hey man, Jack is a busy guy…he was there helping Lorde on what will be her next super smash, Melodrama.

If you are familair with Bleachers or even his previous band .fun, then you’ll have a pretty good idea of what is about to go down. 80’s-ish sounding synth based pop. I think you’ll hear Lorde a little on this song in the mix too. Neat.

Talking to Rolling Stone he talks about the first sing ‘Don’t Take The Money.”

I wanted to write this song from the perspective of two incredibly complicated people who are dealing with loss and anxiety and depression. You have these crazy fights, and after you go all the way to the bottom, everything is so clear.

Go with yourself.

Wild Cub principle Keegan DeWitt took a pause in the rock & roll tour schedule to call into The Zone. Here are a couple clips from that chit-chat.

Keegan shares the origin story for their much mega hit, “Thunder Clatter.”  Keegan says the idea for the song happened the week he met the woman who would eventually become his wife!

Then I asked Keegan about the song “Colour” which also touches on relationships. But this song talks about those tumultuous partnerships we enjoy in our 20s.

We’ll get a chance to see Wild Cub when their tour with Bleachers rolls through Vancouver on November 8th. The concert will be at The Rio Theatre.

Go with yourself.

Bleachers remix
Big sounding remix of Bleachers “I Wanna Get Better.”  Vince Clarke of Depche Mode fame synthses it right out.  He has created bouncy head bopping dance cut that keeps many of the original cut’s core elements.  But I am also hearing industrial beats and sounds.

Go with yourself.

It is hard for me when I am reading about a new band or song and I see, “inspired by John Hughes.”  That phrase needs to be expunged from your band’s bio.

Today it is Jack Antonoff of fun. using phrase to describe his new side-project, Bleachers.

Antonoff was talking to Radio.com, ““There’s something nostalgic and ’80s and John Hughes about some of the stuff I do, but I never wanted to make anything that was in any way retro.”

Let’s check out the positive rock song “I Wanna Get Better.”  Its a catchy jingle that leans on that fun. sound.

Go with yourself.
