Album Review Bleached - Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough?

Bleached - Don't You Think You've Had Enough?

Doses of nostalgia all over the shop.

Rating:

Three years on from second LP ‘Welcome The Worms’, Californians Bleached are stripped back to a duo - sisters Jennifer and Jessie Clavin - and newly-sober. That’s not all that’s changed on the self-exploratory ‘Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough?’ - where previously they found themselves revelling in a giddy brand of scuzzy punk, this time they’ve got a tad more polish.

The funky strut of lead single ‘Hard To Kill’ feels like a 2019 take on Blondie, ‘Somebody Dial 911’ boasts a Smiths-like haziness, before the disco funk of ‘Kiss You Goodbye’ strolls in. And while their new guise has them in a more experimental mood - injecting doses of nostalgia all over the shop - it also doesn’t quite possess the same level of clout as before.
