Video Premiere: Bleached’s Sun-Streaked ‘Searching Through the Past’
Band broke into a graveyard to make this thing happen
Three months after we heard Bleached’s latest song for the very first time, “Searching Through the Past” still sounds so good. For the single’s sun-streaked, Molly Schiot-directed visual, the sisters Clavin (Jessica and Jennifer, formerly of L.A. punk outfit Mika Miko) got the hell out of town, rode horses, chased tumbleweeds, and snuck into a graveyard. We repeated, the band snuck into a graveyard to shoot this thing. Read Jennifer’s account below!
“We had to wake up at 4 a.m. to get to Santa Clarita by 5 a.m. for sunrise and got to see the eclipse on the way up. Originally we had wanted horses in the video so that’s why this spot was chosen. There was a graveyard there I had known about, but didn’t know if we would be able to get in it. We did by crossing a barbed wire fence and climbing a huge hill. When we got up there the gates swung open on their own. By the last shot my heel had completely broken off so I was balancing on one heel trying to make it look normal. My sister and I agreed that climbing over mountains in four-inch heels is the hardest workout we’ve ever had.”
