Originally a minimalist noise pop duo, Bleeding Rainbow (formerly Reading Rainbow) are now a 4-piece rock band, capable of a fully trippy, fuzzed-out sonic assault. The Philadelphia band wears its 90s subculture inspiration proudly on its vintage t-shirt sleeve, evoking appropriately fuzzy shades of Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo, and more. The band sat down with Maia to chat about being caught stealing, how they got the crazy effects (intentional or otherwise) for a music video, and why it didn’t take a lawsuit to get them to change their name.
Featured song: “Drift Away”
Bleeding Rainbow’s Yeah Right will be out on Kanine Records January 29, 2013.
