Serving up raffish 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 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 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. This more polished style was evident on the band's first full-length, 2013's Ride Your Heart. To make their second album, Welcome the Worms, the Clavins -- and bassist Micayla Grace -- retreated to a cottage in Joshua Tree, California to write songs about their heartaches and changing lives. Featuring production by Joe Chiccarelli and Carlos de la Garza, Welcome the Worms arrived in 2016. Bleached returned in 2017 with Can You Deal, an EP partly inspired by the sexist questions they encountered while doing press for Welcome the Worms. In addition, Jennifer Clavin compiled a zine -- also titled Can You Deal -- that featured thoughts on sexism from artists including Liz Phair, EMA, Lizzo, and Patty Schemel; the net proceeds of the zine benefited Planned Parenthood. ~ Heather Phares
