Hear Bleached’s Disturbed Earworm ‘Dead in Your Head’

Bleached 'Dead in Your Head' Ride Your Heart Dead Oceans New Song

Bleached sisters Jessica and Jennifer Clavin cut their teeth with surf-tinged noise-punk posse Mika Miko, but their new focus channels their former freneticism into powerful hook-work and production value. “This feels more pop than punk,” Jennifer said to SPIN in November, taking a break from recording the duo’s debut album, Ride Your Heart, and so far she’s been right. “Next Stop” rocked plenty — and the video depicts them tattooing people at house parties and in hotel rooms — but it’s the song’s sunniness that truly shines. Although new one “Dead in Your Head” is a little more melancholy in terms of subject matter (“I never wanted to lose the boy I love the most”), the steady guitars, tough drums, and sweet vocals make for a real earworm of a track. To borrow from the lyrics, it’s quite likely that when you close your eyes at night, this chorus will still be echoing through your head. In any case, it’d be a more welcome resident than all of those dead hopes and dreams Bleached is singing about.
