When Jack Antonoff started Bleachers, writing songs in hotel rooms while on tour with fun. he openly admits he didn’t really know what he was doing.
Despite that, debut album ‘Strange Desire’’s emotional, open approach and his ability to craft gigantic pop songs made him a cult star. Second album ‘Gone Now’ finds him more experienced, more confident, more in-demand and poised for very big things.
Loss is still a big subject he deals with, but here it’s integrated in a more multi-dimensional way, exploring not just the sorrow and bereft feeling that follows, but also how those experiences shape you as a person. On this album Antonoff celebrates good times and bad.
