“Thank You And Sorry” Bleachers

by WildChild

Bleachers is a band that crept up on everyone, and just keeps reaching into my number one spot.  The music sealed the deal for me already with its 80’s, High Fidelity vibe; the lyrics with their passion, vulnerability, and relatable nature; the live show with the pure ecstatic feeling of being part of something bigger.  This is something I have never felt before at a show, it felt as if the band had been around for decades, not just starting their first tour.   f4a3d40020258a2de5eccd0a5cd6a77c

His docuseries is coming out soon, where we get to see how he lives his life with the motto of “Thank You And Sorry”.  Something I believe most of us can relate to.  All in all, I hope he stands outside Lena’s apartment with a boom box raised over his head playing “Wake Me”.

Jack Antonoff originally drew me in due to his New Jersey boy vibe, agoraphobic ways and fabulous cut of shorts with the pockets wiggling out.  Not to mention this strange human mingles with the best in the biz like girlfriend Lena Dunham, and friends Taylor Swift,Grimes and Sia.jck3 jck1 jack

And if you aren’t convinced he is someone we should look up to: “Social paralysis is strong and stands firmly in the way of change on the ground level. As allies, we have to prepare ourselves to step into the fire when necessary, even – and especially – when said fire is merely a still-lit cigarette tossed carelessly onto the street.” Jack Antonoff
