Over the last few months, emerging outfit Bleach Lab have quickly cemented themselves as one of the more alluring names emerging right now. After a captivating run of releases that see them revive the ethereal shoegaze sound for a modern ear, they have been quick to find praise and support for their work of late, building up quite the buzz in the process. But now look to cement that legacy as they deliver their eagerly-awaited debut album 'Lost In A Rush Of Emptiness', a record brimming with tantalising textures.
Produced by boygenius, PJ Harvey and The Big Moon collaborator Catherine Marks, the general sound of 'Lost In A Rush Of Emptiness' has a familiar yet distinctive direction to it. While it is easy to hear where their influences lie throughout this new collection, Bleach Lab make great strides to deliver something passionate and surprising as often as possible. Conjuring the same shimmering appeal as The Cure from start to finish, their first full-length has this instant attraction to it, as they find themselves in an extremely confident and assured guise from start to finish.
With so much material coming from this record before it got released, there was never any doubt it wasn't going to be an exceptionally proficient listen. Bleach Lab have been one of the darlings of the 2023 movement and 'Lost In A Rush Of Emptiness' is a firm reminder of why so many have been flocking to them lately.
