BOTW #62 – Bleachers


This week’s band of the week, Bleachers, is a side project spearheaded by Jack Antonoff (also known for his role in fun. as the lead guitarist).

Songs that grow on you are the best kinds of songs. This was definitely the case for “I Wanna Get Better” by Bleachers. The first time I heard the song, I thought it was pretty good, but nothing special compared to fun. As a few weeks pass by, and the track starts to sink in, I find myself looping the track on my playlist almost everyday! With the poppy-upbeat piano and anthemic melody in “I Wanna Get Better”, you can surely hear Jack’s influence on fun.’s catchy songs.

In an interview I heard, Jack mentioned that Bleachers will likely tour whilst fun. is in full swing, so that will be cool to see if he can pull it off!

Peace, Love, & Rock n’ Roll,
