American rock band Bleachers, consisting of Jack Antonoff (lead vocals/guitar/bass/keyboards), Evan Smith (keyboards), Mikey Freedom Hart (guitar), Sean Hutchinson (drums), Mike Riddleberger (drums) and Zem Audu (keyboards/saxophone), is back.
The band premiered a new song “Modern Girl” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
It is their first music in two years since the 2021 album “Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night”.
Also, the song is the first single under their new label Dirty Hit.
The single will be featured on the final season of the Netflix series “Sex Education”.
The track was written by Jack Antonoff and Evan Smith. Produced by Jack Antonoff. The accompanying music video was directed by Alex Lockett.
The band lead singer Jack Antonoff told Clara Amfo about the song, “The first thing I thought we just said is a lot of times people discuss the cinematic quality of things I do. And I think that that comes from having a very growing up in a very unsystematic place like I grew up in suburban New Jersey and so there's a lot of like, dreaming about the city and dreaming about the night dreaming about what people do and and so there's that's always listed into my music like this like kind of aspirational thing.”
- He continued, “But it didn't get that because there is a party quality to it. Like this is the band as you know, I've had many bands in my life and maybe one out of my two albums and they usually kind of fall apart. So to kind of goes beyond that a really interesting thing happens which is the band itself becomes the reference point. So like that song is not only is like packed with like inside jokes and lyrics, but the sound of it. It's just like, it is that sound of us on tour. Choosers I mean, I'm in this room right now. This is the Electric Lady in New York. And I'm here every day and it's just all the records we make like Bleachers records, records, I produce Bleachers, bands, pretty much the band and all the records it's kind of all happening in this one moment in time to me because it cuz I always sort of thought scenes were dead and then I kind of like realized, I kind of have a little scene going on here. It's just a bit undocumented with pictures.”
