Jack Antonoff has been working on something new, apart from his very successful band Fun. In what little spare time he has, he’s been producing and writing music with his side project Bleachers! Bleachers’ first single “I Wanna Get Better” is a fun (pun intended) mix of Jack’s influence from Fun. and an almost Imagine Dragons-like vibe. With lots of repetition and electronic tones, this new tune is sure to get stuck in your head if you hear even a few seconds of the chorus. This combination genre will not only appeal to those who already listen to Fun but also to a new network of people who are attracted to the alternative genre.
The fans of Fun. have been very supportive of Antonoff’s plans to make more music apart from Fun. Though a few may be a little hesitant that it might interfere with the main project, Antonoff assures them that it won’t.
It’s impossible to predict what the rest of Bleachers’ music will sound like but I think it’s safe to say it could “get better”!
