Meet Bleach Lab, the four-piece from South London creating ethereal dream pop.
With only three songs out in the world, Bleach Lab are already making a swift impact with their incredibly polished sound. Their first release, “Heartache of the Season”, in 2019, established the band’s sound wholeheartedly. Building gently to create a dreamy introduction, singer Jenna Kyle’s soft, delicate vocals immediately captivate as the track builds to include Smiths-like guitar riffs and head swaying drum beats.
This year, Bleach Lab shared their second track, Burnt Orange, which felt like the sonic sunset to “Heartache Season”‘s sunrise. A darker number, it’s reminiscent of Mazzy Star – especially in her aloof vocals being akin to that of Hope Sandoval’s.
The third song Bleach Lab added to their young roster was “Sleep”, a floaty and mysterious number about the breakdown of a longterm relationship. It was in fact, one of the earliest tracks they wrote together, but it sounds completely effortless and simultaneously refined.
Keep an eye out – we predict big things for Bleach Lab.
