2013 is already shaping up to be a big year for Philly rockers Bleeding Rainbow. Last month saw the release of their third record and “big” indie debut Yeah Right, which launched the previously little-known foursome to solid buzz band status. It’s the band’s first release since they morphed from a duo to a quartet—and from Reading Rainbow to Bleeding Rainbow—and with the new record comes a new sound. Compared to its predecessors, Yeah Right is thicker, moodier, and dreamier, recasting the band as Philly’s new purveyors of shoegaze.
This week, we’ll be exploring Yeah Right every day on Unlocked, The Key’s regular showcase of new and significant releases from Philadelphia-area artists—in advance of the band’s Valentine’s Day show at Johnny Brenda’s. Tomorrow I’ll review the album; later in the week we’ll share a live video, and chat with the band. Today, we feature a stream of “Waking Dream,” an undeniable record highlight, and sunny journey through beaming guitars and resplendent harmonies. Check it out below — then check back all week for more Yeah Right on Unlocked.Bleeding Rainbow, Unlocked
