Following on from a premiere by UK tastemakers The 405, Byron Bay-based beach-punk / garage-rock duo, Bleach Girls have just unveiled tour dates and their debut single ‘Like You’ – lifted from their forthcoming debut EP ‘Hi!’ (due Nov 2016).
Recorded at Blind Boy Studios, Gold Coast, ‘Like You’ takes cues from the group’s staple influences Best Coast, Alvvays and FIDLAR. The track melds bratty surf-rock with angsty lo-fi punk; yet still managing to retain well refined pop-sensibilities, sure to ensue many rowdy late night sing-a-longs.
Whilst ‘Like You’ is their debut release, the band have long been playing live shows up and down the Australian East Coast and in Bali, performing at house parties and supporting the likes of Dune Rats, The Coathangers (USA) and touring nationally with iconic surf-rock group, Goons of Doom.
In the true spirit of their hard work ethic approach to touring, the dainty duo will set off on 13 dates performing in Bali, Indonesia and NSW, VIC and QLD, Australia.
An accompanying music video for ‘Like You’ will all be revealed in the coming weeks, which will precede the aforementioned debut EP.
