NEW ARTIST OF THE DAY: Bleeding Rainbow

Old Subbacultcha

Old Subbacultcha

Guitars as solid as concrete and melodies that draw you into the discordant melancholy…

SUBBA-CULTCHA SAYS: “Forging together the melodic bite of the Breeders with the explosive rock histrionics of Joy Formidable, all delivered with the rhythmical nous of Blood Red Shoes at their most primal. The guitars are constantly driving the song onwards as the drums breakdown around the discordant riffage, whilst those vocals either shriek out of the barrage of distorted guitars or find a lower range that gives the song a great feeling of melancholy you won’t find on the latest Strypes record. This is an amazing song full of great twists, and we can’t wait to hear more from Bleeding Rainbow, and with Dave Grohl’s seal of approval, it won’t be long before you do! Check out the track at the bottom of this article and keep your eyes out for our forthcoming interview with the band!”
bleeding Based in Philadelphia, Bleeding Rainbow began as girl-boy duo Sarah Everton and Rob Garcia. Previously known as Reading Rainbow, they released two albums on their own label, until Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein had a word and the new moniker of Bleeding Rainbow was born. The band expanded to a four piece, signed to Brooklyn label Kanine Records (Grizzly Bear, Chairlift, Splashh, Fear Of Men), released third album Yeah Right to critical acclaim and won over famous fans including Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. Now the band look to make their UK debut with the powerful and raw Interrupt. Notable throughout Interrupt is the pounding drums of Robi Gonzalez of A Place To Bury Strangers. “Every take of every song I would watch both Al and Rob staring at Robi in complete awe. We owe Robi quite a lot.” It was produced and engineered by Kyle “Slick” Johnson whose credits include Wavves, The Hives and Cymbals Eat Guitars.
