It’s not hard to imagine the sister duo of Jessica and Jennifer Clavin re-defining what it means to be a teenager today, but with their debut album from their latest project, Bleached, the sisters mined emotion like it were Texas oil and paired it with melodic garage rock. The pop hooks and angelic cadences are impossibly catchy. Ride Your Heart is as much a record spinning endlessly in a teenage girl’s bedroom as it is a cracking pub standout, blending simplistic chords with surf-rock backbeat. Album standout “Dead In Your Head” echoes with an exacting yet faint heart. Bleached’s tight production values and fresh sentimentality touch on a post riot-grrl genre. Three chords and an attitude have created many a legend in the music industry. Take heed, Bleached is poised to smash your radio.
