Bleachers - Self-Titled (Deluxe)

1695237153496.jpeg

Stylizing it as “Jack Antonoff & Bleachers”… They really said let’s cash in on that Taylor bestie status AND lean into his Springsteen & The E Street Band fantasy, huh!

Song is a bit like if anything off the last album (wiry, live band arrangements) had more of the full-bodied production of the first two albums. So, pretty much the platonic ideal of a Bleachers song. I like it!
 
He/They
Not it sounding like it could be found half way through The River.

I'm piqued though, and hope they tour the UK wider than London next time

I like this—maybe a lot! He's brought back the voice clips that marked the first two albums, it seems. Considering how clear (and beautiful!) Lana's vocal is in the mix, I'm surprised why she goes uncredited here. The gauzy persistent synthscape is what evolves the TTSOOSN soundscape here. I'm cautiously excited for the album considering it's a boldface self-titled consolidation of full-band ethos.
