24 Apr Premiere: Chelsea Bleach – ‘Public Safety’

Last week the Melbourne radio station 3RRR FM premiered Chelsea Bleach‘s debut single ‘Public Safety‘ and now we have the online premiere to share with the world.

Chelsea Bleach are a five piece band from Melbourne who you shouldn’t confuse with the Los Angeles band Bleached. Despite a similar raw ’90s punk garage sound. Chelsea Bleach sound closer to Sleater-Kinney or Ex Hex (without the lead guitar hooks).

Their debut single ‘Public Safety‘ deals with the angst generated from invasions of private space and property. The stabbing guitars create a tortured atmosphere, while the band shouts out “I shouldn’t have to explain. What’s mine is mine”.

They call the genre Wetwave and you can catch the single launch at The Old Bar in Melbourne on May 20th. Two Steps On The Water, Wet Lips & Habits DJs are also on the bill.
