It's the perfect fusion of light and dark...

South London indie pop risers Bleach Lab return with new single 'Violet Light'.

The band's new EP 'Nothing Feels Real' lands on October 15th, mere days after their long-since sold out show at London's Lexington.

Each single seems to amplify expectations, and gorgeous indie pop pearl 'Violet Light' certainly strengthens their case.

Hazy guitar lines and that purring vocal, the song's low-key effervescence disguises a lyric about grief, and learning to move on.

Prompted by the passing of bassist Josh Longman's father, 'Violet Light' is a wonderfully affecting search for acceptance.

Josh Longman says...

“During lockdown I went to live with my mum as otherwise we both would have been on our own. I think the idea to write a song entirely about him came to me during that period as I got to dig out old family photos. I think this track has really helped me overcome a lot of things that maybe I thought I would never talk about. ‘Nothing Feels Real’ as an EP title definitely is how I’d describe the situation I was in.”
