On the brink of a European tour, sisters Jessica and Jennifer Clavin, also known as rock & roll duo, Bleached, leave their home town of L.A. to cross the pond and talk to Dazed about their hard-edged yet vintage-inspired sound. Having received high praise after their sell-out 7"s 'Carter' and 'Searching Through the Past', the sisters anticipate a full length album to be on the cards for the future.
