Bleachers Can't Get Much Better on Jimmy Kimmel

A few months back, a quick Google search of "bleachers" wouldn't have delivered results relating in any way to music. That's because the band, helmed by Fun.'s lead guitarist Jack Antonoff, was trying to keep a low profile by writing and recording in secret. But in February, Bleachers erased their anonymity by releasing their first single, and with festival stops at Governors Ball and Firefly, the band has gained a following pretty quickly and has moved away from only being associated with an inanimate object. And to keep the hype alive, the New York indie pop group stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote their upcoming album.

Sporting a pretty sweet muscle-t along with the classic pants tucked into socks combo and idiosyncratically pushing his hat away from his face, Antonoff brings an endearingly goofy style and liveliness to his performance. The energy of "I Wanna Get Better" ignited the stage and the audience, as the onlookers couldn't help but sing along to the undeniably catchy tune. The band then slowed it down a bit with "Shadow," but the power of the group never dissipated—with vigorous harmonies and near-constant bopping around the stage, the indie-poppers showed that they have an undeniable magnetism when performing to match their upbeat recordings, a clear sign pointing towards considerable success for their debut Strange Desire, out July 15. Watch the performances below.





You can preorder Strange Desire on iTunes now.
