((Bleeding Rainbow)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Philadelphia's Bleeding Rainbow (formerly Reading Rainbow) are a male/female (husband/wife too!) duo that rock that Mama & the Papas sun-drenched psych-pop thing. And they rock it really well.

Bleeding Rainbow makes me want to dive like a swan into a giant Slurpee sea. Their echo-y harmonies, sounding straight out of somewhere south of here, swirl just how you want them to swirl. Their snappy drums pop, their rhythms bop, and their quick keyboard choruses make me want to take my Big Gulp (again with the 7-11?) and head straight for the nearest Sock Hop. Good stuff, we tell you. Good stuff.

If you like Eternal Summers, Vivian Girls, Cults, Dum Dum Girls, and that one good song by that one band Black Kids who were around for that one hot minute, you will most definitely probably be into Bleeding Rainbow.

Oh yeah, if you're into summer, you'll be into Bleeding Rainbow too. But that's dumb, because who isn't into summer?! You're one cold-hearted penguin if you aren't into summer. Check out Bleeding Rainbow's recent 7" on Hozac Records (Woven Bones, The Smith Westerns). And, of course, catch them play.
