Show Review

Philadelphia-based Bleeding Rainbow oozes with 90s nostalgia. While their name may evoke memory of afternoon lessons with LeVar Burton (even though they've tried to avoid it), their glittery garage tones on recent full-length release, Yeah Right are reminiscent of the shoegaze era's bubbly pop personalities.

After recently expanding to a quartet to record Yeah Right, Bleeding Rainbow visited Hype Machine's Hype Hotel to emit the expanded sound that they've together created.

Transcript

When the the feelings we made It's too soon before you actually came
Can't hold on to the day Shut your eyes and you're so far away
When it all goes away
Darkness all around you I can tell by the way your body moves
There's no sound in this place
All that's left are the dark clouds and rain
When it all comes away
What goes on I can't say to you because I've been here for days
and my mind is okay
When the world is spinning too What side will you choose?
What will you do? I'll pretend that I knew
Everything you went through When it all goes away
When it all goes away When it all goes away
Thanks guys.
We're Bleeding Rainbow from Philadelphia.
The static makes me frantic Way out of bounds to be around
It's too much for my mind There's nothing here I can find
Just thought I had lots of fear, I used to feel so much now I can't be healed
Too much more and I'll lose what's real There's no way out of here
The sun's no longer bright The moon is shadowed by the night
If you're lost and fall down There won't be anyone around
Just thought I had lots of fear, I used to feel so much now I can't be healed
Too much more and I'll lose what's real There's no way out of here
There's no reason until we find how far we are
There's only time until we find how far we are
Just thought I had lots of fear, I used to feel so much now I can't be healed
Too much more and I'll lose what's real There's no way out of here
Pass through each day and every night
But in this moment it feels right My eyes are cloudy like the sky
The streets are empty, but they're dry
Circles run into my eyes I don't breathe, I just sigh
Constant droning of each day Makes my mind drift away
As I drift away
I can feel shadows on the street more than into people that I need
some time to need to stay alone Please don't say that you know
what I know
Circles run into my eyes I don't breathe, I just sigh
Constant droning of each day Makes my mind drift away
As I drift away
As I drift away
As I drift away As I drift away
As I drift away
Thanks.
Everything that I dream I wanna see in front of me
Please take me away I know I can sleep when it's over
Sunshine is all I see Life running over me
I've found everything I need And now I can dream
Walk a little more Until we find what we're looking for
I'm alive in this place I only feel love
I do not hate
Sunshine is all I see Life running over me
I've found everything I need And I can dream
Sometimes I never want to hear the things I've heard before
I'll take a trip to find a way to risk it, life is such a bore
And when I come back I'll be ageless as before
Never met so many people I'm awake and I feel too far gone
Tired of the noise around me This sound is all I ever hear
So I escape Away from this place
It's not too late
Sunshine is all I see Life running over me
I've found everything I need And I can dream
Sometimes I never want to hear the things I've heard before
I'll take a trip to find a way to risk it, life is such a bore
And when I come back I'll be ageless as before
Well, thanks guys.
We got one more.
whoa, whoa, ooh, whoa

Artist Bio

Nevermind the constant threat of a cease and desist letter, when Carrie Brownstein tells you that your band name is weak, you change it. But it isn't as simple as a name change for Philadelphia's minimal noise pop duo Reading Rainbow, significant line up additions facilitated the adoption of a new moniker. Sodrum roll pleaseas we reintroduce Philadelphia's Bleeding Rainbow, now a full-blown, Brownstein-approved, rock quartet. The name better represents the band's evolving sound and is all around more badass and trippy as sh*t. The founding members, Sarah Everton, who moved from drums to bass to give her vocals a better chance to shine, and vocalist/guitarist Rob Garcia are now joined by Al Creedon on lead guitar and drummer Greg Frantz.

While 2010's album release Prism Eyes gained significant attention and raised the band's profile among the indie elite, even that set might not be aware of the previous self-released album Mystical Participation. If Prism Eyes is, by their own description, their attempt at writing pop songs, and Mystical Participation emphasizes an aesthetic of loud and drone-y guitars instead of focused song structure, Yeah Right, the band's third album release set for October 9th, 2012 on Kanine Records, is the merging and maturation of all these ideas and sounds.

For Yeah Right, the band has opted for a bi-polar approach to production, pushing the extremes of murky, ominous and sometimes harsh and fuzzed-out guitar onslaughts ("Pink Ruff") as well as a strong repertoire of hushed, ethereal moments ("Cover the Sky") aiming to evoke a nostalgia for 90s slacker culture without sounding bored or contrived. While previous releases reside in the reverb-soaked psychedelic pop realm, Bleeding Rainbow says, "the sound this time around was more directly influenced by bands from our teenage-hood such as Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, and Yo La Tengo to name a few." Mixing hints of Greg Sage's anthemic, anxiety-ridden punk riffs, with equal parts drone and noise swells reminiscent of Kevin Shields at his most inventive, with an overlaying of boy-girl harmonies, Bleeding Rainbow channels the Mamas and the Papas as if backed by early Smashing Pumpkins.

With the inclusion of two long time friends and supporters of the band, Bleeding Rainbow has not only freed itself from the limitations of a two-piece, but given themselves a chance to delve deeper into the mood of songs and allow for extended instrumental sections ("Drift Away"). A more collaborative songwriting approach has resulted in more complex songs, but that does not mean they are without pretty sounds or pop moments. So while Yeah Right opens up easy and welcoming ("Go Ahead"), the end will leave you feeling as if a wall of noise has permeated through your body ("Get Lost"). Bleeding Rainbow set out to create something beautiful from harsh noise, and Yeah Right succeeds wildly at doing just that.
