Formation Sisters Jen and Katherine O'Neill got together with former school friend Matt Bick to form the band in 2009. They were soon noticed by former Food Records boss Andy Ross, and played at his Camden Crawl festival that year.
Early days (2009-2011) With the release of their first single, Is It True That Boys Don't Cry?, Bleech swiftly gained approval from the music media, including places on the NME 10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week list, NME Radio A-list, BBC Radio 6 playlist and Gill Mills' Best of Myspace list. Their second single, The Worthing Song, was also on the NME Radio A-list and Single of the Month in Clash Magazine. Clash also featured Mondays on a free download compilation album of their top tracks of the month. By the end of 2009, Bleech had supported several top acts, including Wolfmother, The Charlatans, Pete Doherty, The Kooks and The Rifles. 2011 saw Bleech becoming the face of the Kangol Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign, which included a photo shoot with renowned music photographer Janette Beckman and a performance at the Aerial7 launch party in New York. They also signed a worldwide publishing deal with Bucks Music Group that year and released their first EP, Deadhead. Nude (2012-2013) In June 2012, Bleech released their first album, Nude. Days after the launch, they were announced as one of the support acts asked to perform at #ASH20, the 20th birthday celebration of Ash, hosted by Josie Long. Shortly after #ASH20, rock music magazine Kerrang! featured an article on Bleech. August saw Bleech play at the Y Not Festival and release their second EP, The Hippie & Me. British Super-Middleweight boxer Frank Buglioni appeared in the band's Break My Nose video in October 2012. The video was nominated for Best Music Video at the Limelight Film Awards 2013. The Fédération des Radios Associatives Rock, a collection of independent French radio stations, listed Nude at number 15 on their Feraliste (a chart of the albums most played by their member stations) for April 2013. Their second album, Humble Sky, will be released in 2013.

Some reviews: "They're alright!!" - PETE DOHERTY "You are about to witness Rock History in the making!" - JOHN KENNEDY (XFM) "I listen to this demo every day" - STEVE LAMACQ (Radio 1) "They Look Fantastic" - BBC "A guitar and vocal marriage made in Nineties heaven, sisters Jennifer and Katherine strike up chords to echo The Breeders and Elastica's less angular moments. Joined by 100 mph drummer Matt Bick, the rock formation is complete, driving home some truly indelible melodies " - BBC
"Very well executed Pixies style 90s shaped indie. Pavement type dynamics and simplicity reigns… it's a yes for us." - Bugbear Bookings
"Pow! Instant anthemic indie prowess drawing influence from the subways elastica and the pixies with an original refreshingly unfrilly, female vocal" - Bull and Gate Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
