"Gone Now" by Bleachers on iTunes

EDITORS’ NOTES

As one of music’s most sought-after songwriters, Jack Antonoff pens stadium-pop hits for Taylor Swift, Lorde, and Carly Rae Jepsen. But as Bleachers—his thundering, belt-your-heart-out, '80s-esque pop-rock project—he’s totally, authentically himself. “I’m a white, Jewish kid from New Jersey,” he told Beats 1. “That’s what my music sounds like, whether I like it or not—and I actually do like it.” Bleachers’ spirited second album is an impassioned tribute to his idols—The Beatles and Bruce Springsteen—with support from contemporary producers like Nineteen85 (Drake, DVSN) and Sounwave (Kendrick Lamar). The entire record could soundtrack a John Hughes film, but there are standouts: “Don’t Take the Money,” a Vince Clarke-produced anthem about not selling out, and “Everybody Lost Somebody,” a heart-on-sleeve ballad with an E-Street Style sax solo.

MattyL.,

Always fresh and always original

This Guy is still having FUN!

The Voice…of reason.,

So far it sounds great! Who needs fun. when Jack can put out even better music on his own. Honesty, the way he experiments with sound and texture on the different tracks, is right up my alley, love it all. Also, do yourself a favor and check out his first band, STEEL TRAIN's self titled album, it's a 10 out of 10. Hoping the rest of this album is just as good!

About Bleachers

New York City-based indie rock band Bleachers is the solo project of Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff. Formed while Antonoff was touring in support of Fun.'s Grammy-nominated 2012 album, Some Nights, Bleachers' slick and emotional pop music is heavily influenced by the '80s and the high-school-based films of John Hughes, while still using modern production techniques. Their debut single, "I Wanna Get Better," was released in the spring of 2014 by RCA, with an album, Strange Desire, following that summer. The record was produced in part by John Hill and Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode, Yaz, Erasure), and featured appearances by Yoko Ono and Grimes. After the record's release, Antonoff put together a live band and launched a tour that lasted through much of 2015. That September, Bleachers released Terrible Thrills, Vol. 2, which featured versions of all the songs from Strange Desire performed by female artists, including Carly Rae Jepsen, Elle King, Tinashe, and Antonoff's sister Rachel. For 2017's Gone Now, which reunited Bleachers with Clarke and featured a cameo by Lorde, he took inspiration from his memories of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and his sister's death from cancer when he was 18. He recorded the album in his home studio and previewed the album in an art installation that replicated his childhood bedroom. ~ Matt Collar
