Philadelphia shoegazers Bleeding Rainbow (oft. compared to Sonic Youth/Slowdive) have just put out video for lead single ‘So You Know.’
BLEEDING RAINBOW SHARE VIDEO FOR ‘SO YOU KNOW’ VIA THE FLY
UK DEBUT INTERRUPT RELEASED 24 FEBRUARY ON KANINE RECORDS
Formerly known as Reading Rainbow, until Carrie Brownstein had a word, Philadelphia’s Bleeding Rainbow count Nirvana’s Novoselic and Grohl as fans and have received critical acclaim from Pitchfork, MOJO and Stereogum. Today, they share their video for lead single “So You Know,” which explores the realm of “what if” through the investigation and manipulation of old photographs – Would life be different if we had the courage to say how we really feel? What if we found out the feeling was mutual? They release their UK debut album Interrupt via Kanine Records on 24 February 2014. The record features Robi Gonzalez of A Place To Bury Strangers on drums and it was produced by Kyle ‘Slick’ Johnson whose credits include Wavves, The Hives and Cymbals Eat Guitars.

PRAISE FOR ‘SO YOU KNOW’ –
“A gauzy three minutes of woozily atmospheric guitar rock that fits the Ride-MBV paradigm snugly” – MOJO
“‘So You Know’ finds the band continuing down the path they blazed with their last one, cleaning up their sound just a smudge.” – Pitchfork
“The album is darker and clingier than what we’ve come to expect from this band, and there’s a distinct ‘90s splintered-guitar aesthetic going on, like they’ve been listening to a ton of Sonic Youth and a ton of the bands Sonic Youth influenced.” – Stereogum
PRAISE FOR BLEEDING RAINBOW –
“This new band Bleeding Rainbow…have you heard this fucking band? They’re great man.” – Dave Grohl
“Bleeding Rainbow rock hard, stuffing their tracks with aggressive chords, pounding drums and exploding layers of fuzz.” – Rolling Stone
“Sarah Everton’s voice is a wonder: A simple and affectless wail that always conveys serious depths without ever showing off.” – Stereogum
