Months after beloved L.A. art-punkers and Smell disciples Mika Miko called it a day in late 2009, sisters Jessica and Jennifer Clavin dove right back into writing and recording together as Bleached. While they’ve definitely taken their sound in another direction (splenetic guitar moves have been swapped out in favor of softer, strummier, far stickier fare), the energy’s not so different at all. That is to say, they’ve still got it.

“Searching Through the Past” is an unshakeable new cut from their forthcoming 7″ single of the same, due December 6 on Suicide Squeeze. Have a listen:
