The indie foursome will unveil their first UK album ‘Interrupt’ February 24th. The lead track, So You Know, has already been shared via Pitchfork and Stereogum to raise excitement over what the band has to offer.
The band have attracted plenty attention over in the US, securing a record deal with Kanine Records who have signed the likes of Grizzly Bear and Fear of Men. It doesn’t stop there as they’ve gained support and approval from rock legend Dave Grohl who said: “This new band Bleeding Rainbow…have you heard this fucking band? They’re great man.”
The group were originally a duo consisting of Sarah Everton and Rob Garcia who were initially known as Reading Rainbow. The male and female two-some produced two albums together under their own label in the hope of establishing themselves. This all changed once Carrie Brownstein, vocalist and guitarist in Sleater-Kinney, worked her magic and created who are presently known as Bleeding Rainbow.
With two additional members, Al Creedon and Ashley Arnwine, Bleeding Rainbow produced their first album ‘Yeah Right’ together. The album offered a 90s rock sound which seems to be a consistent theme that runs onto the new album Interrupt.
The track ‘So You Know’ has a punk edge to it, making you feel as if you are dancing alone, awkwardly in the middle of a teen disco – in a good way, though. The moody teenager vibe puts you in a state of teenage angst as the guitar and drum combination make you reminiscent of the angry, “hate the world” phase you went through.
You don’t feel moody or upset at planet Earth when you listen to it, however. Instead you find yourself listening to the music with ease and embracing your inner, suppressed punk.
With 2013 being an undoubtably exciting year for the band, perhaps 2014 will see the group embark in gigs and tours, but until then we will have to appreciate the records through the means of their Soundcloud:
