London-based, Buckinghamshire-formed quartet Bleach Lab washes us with ethereal waves of laidback haziness and hazy croons with their new single “Old Ways.” On the surface, it feels like a track you’ll put on in the background while engaging in other chill endeavors like sipping tea or drawing stick figures. But when you digest the lyrics, “Old Ways” taps into the anger we feel at the initial stages of grief when you’ve broken up with someone. Hit play:
“‘Old Ways’ explores the angry side of the grieving process at the end of a relationship. Anger towards the way in which they treated you but also towards oneself for still missing them regardless,” shared Bleach Lab’s singer Jenna Kyle.
The track is from Bleach Lab’s upcoming EP A Calm Sense of Surrounding, which will be out on March 19th. The EP is based on various harships that the band have encountered including the death of bassist Josh Longman father and Kyle’s end of a long-term relationship. Keep the quartet under your radar as they’ll teach you how to move on from anger to acceptance.
