I’ve been the biggest fan girl of Bleachers’ music since I first heard I Wanna Get Better in 11th grade. From there it’s been my anthem, and the rest is history. Except history just got interesting because his newest album was released last month, and I simply cannot stop listening.
Twelve wonderful, personal, creative, and expressive hits that epitomize a feeling of outwardness and being unplugged from everything and everyone. The crazy part is that even if unconsciously, we’ve all felt this sort of introvert’s apology to the rest of humanity, and Bleachers is the first artist I’ve listened to who has represented it and all its honesty.
His lyrics are chaotic, truthful, and unmatched, but what is exceptional is the story being told within the record. A true bildungsroman of life, love, and loss.
It’s really the best.
Cheers to recognizing that brilliant creators still exist!
Some personal favorites of mine:
- Everybody Lost Somebody
