When Jack Antonoff first stepped out alone he became quickly infamous for his brand of brilliantly wonky pop songs. With debut ‘Strange Desire’, he created a set of multi-faceted anthems which provided an opportunity to dance and cry at the same time.
Unsurprisingly for follow-up ‘Gone Now’, he’s building upon those solid gold foundations – just take a quick glance at the rest of his resumé – with sights set even higher. ‘Don’t Take The Money’ is a spectacular segue in, while ‘Everybody Lost Somebody’ stands tall as a bittersweet slice of perfection. An album that’s vibrant and full of life while still being wonderfully introspective, yet again, Bleachers has outdone himself.
