An incredible new band making their debut earlier this year with the release of their first single, perplexedthis September; in a few short months, the dynamic 5-piece, East-London-based group, Boy Bleach, have been going from strength to strength. Rapidly building up a dedicated fanbase and making themselves known on the music scene, in a few short months, they have already captivated listeners with their series of releases; the latest of which is their most recent single, LOVEU2X – which they dropped late last month. Exploring an array of themes, such as love and mental health – with the band’s anthemic music derived from the feelings of their generation’s shared anxieties, which include: self sabotaging thoughts, body image and the pressure of constantly gunning for greatness; they do this through their unique and enchanting blend of melodic electro and synth-pop based soundscapes, that feature pulsating beats and high-powered crescendos. Ending on a high note, and having had an incredible 2021 and musical debut, we can expect more fantastic releases from Boy Bleach as we head into 2022.

Showcasing another side to the band’s sound and style, LOVEU2X gives off a gentle and ambient vibe, complete with their signature synth-pop elements, as they deliver a narrative all about a turbulent relationship and the tension and unease of being in a relationship and it having come to an end. Alongside the release, the band also dropped some stunning new cinematic visuals to accompany the track. Directed by David Ranson, the video perfectly reflects and depicts the restless ups and downs of a relationship, showcasing this in an ethereal, dream-like fashion as the visuals cut between a series of memories and emotive dance-led transitions. An incredible release from Boy Bleach, they continue to showcase their poignant and artistic skill and vision.
