Woah – Not Stuff That Would Normally Go Up – But This is Good – The Bleaching Hour


Yo…this is not typically the stuff that goes up on the site but Philippines-based band The Bleaching Hour just dropped this frickin’ amazing record called ‘Meet Me in the Graveyard’ that y’all should definitely check out if you’re into something a lil’ more chill. According to Melt Records who released this, “Inspired by different decades, The Bleaching Hour is a project that aims to create a new sound. It started with a synth-driven EP “nobody can dance to this!?” in 2019 under their former name, The Esthers. Followed by a second EP, “something strange happened here” in 2020, recorded individually due to the pandemic.

The band’s influences range from bands of the 60s: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors to the Riot Grrl movement-inspired groups in the 90s – Bikini Kill, Hole, Babes in Toyland – while also being empowered by modern pop acts like Lana Del Rey, The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Lorde.”

Any band that name drops Bikini Kill is worthy of support in our books.
