Bleachers, the solo project of fun.’s Jack Antonoff, has been attracting attention with poppy hooks and ’80s-injected melodies on his 11-track debut LP, Strange Desire. One track in particular, “Take Me Away,” stands apart as a dreamy cyber-hop tune that definitely channels the influence of his collaborator, Grimes.
The Canadian producer/singer’s ethereal vocals offer a delicate contrast to Antonoff’s beats, stark screams, and dramatic build-up towards the end of the song. The song’s brevity keeps it tight, but you may find yourself hitting “repeat” at least twice. Bleachers is scheduled to play the Made In America Festival on August 30, while Grimes is slated to perform on August 31st. You can find information about MIA on our concert calendar here.
