Bleachbear was named “Seattle's Best Underage Band” by Seattle Weekly in 2014 following the release of their debut album "Lost Parade” which received local and international airplay. Hall of Fame DJ Marco Collins wrote, “MY GOD! That voice. Do yourself a favor, press play on the band’s new record, ‘Lost Parade’ and become enchanted.”
Bleachbear’s sophomore album “Cowboy Movie Star” is an ode to western deserts, 1950´s slow dances, and old Hollywood, inspired by a book of vintage postcards Tigerliy stumbled upon. Bleachbear worked with veteran grunge producer Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks, Young Fresh Fellows) to capture a raw Seattle sound. The album was released in July 2016.
"If you asked us to summarize what Seattle sounds like in just one band. . .we would probably say Bleachbear . . . the music penned by the pop-rock trio does wonders in blending guitar-driven ethereal dream pop music, and jangly, pleasant surf rock revivalism . . . the musical equivalent of a blurry, low-exposure Polaroid picture of one of the best nights of your life."- Northwest Music Scene
