Los Angeles-based sister duo Jennifer and Jessie Clavin knew that things were going to be different for their
band Bleached sophomore LP Welcome The Worms . Not only had they managed to charm world renowned
producer and engineer, Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, The Strokes, Elton John) to join the sisters and their
bassist Micayla Grace in the studio, but Jen and Jessie had been crawling out of their own personal dramas.
Jessie was evicted from her house and scrambling, while Jen ended a torrid, unhealthy romance. While
emotionally spinning, she dove head first into music. She struggled and escaped the pressures with drinking
and partying, sometimes to excess, feeling like she was losing herself altogether.
"I was a loose canon," the commanding front woman says. "I was losing serious control of my personal and
creative life. I was falling apart, trying to escape. I felt like Bleached was the only thing I actually cared
The 10-song LP was born out of triple the amount of demos. Sometimes the three girls spent time writing at
a remote house in Joshua Tree away from the seemingly destructive city (a first since bassist Micayla had
never contributed to songwriting on previous releases). Other times Jen and Jessie worked alone, just like
when they were teenaged punk brats playing in their parent's San Fernando Valley garage imitating their
heroes The Slits, Black Flag and Minor Threat.

Great decision! I love this album.
Being a 90's kid I am a sucker for a good guitar band with a little attitude and a lot of heart. Bleached have great song writing chops and keep it real. No corporate polish here, just three ladies who rock out.
The sound could loosely be described as punk pop, there are plenty of catchy melodies and hooks with just enough distortion and rawness to keep it in the alternative camp. They remind me a little of Veruca Salt but with less sheen and polish. More garage and less MTV I would say.
I am looking forward to what this band puts out in the future.
