Brisbane alt-rock band Sunbleached share grungy new single Hell Is Repetition, fresh off the back of their appearance at New Bloom Festival last month.

Produced and recorded with long time collaborator Dylan Cottee, Hell Is Repetition is the heaviest and darkest song in the quartet’s repertoire to date. The track is an introspective look at behaviour everyone falls into from time to time, romanticising feeling depressed or remaining in a negative mindset instead of fixing the problem.

“The lyrical hook “How long will I stay here slow dancing with my demons” questions how long I’ll keep on repeating that process instead of trying to do better,” explains vocalist Josh Baker.

Late last month Sunbleached joined a handful of their biggest influences in CitizenMovementsTouché Amoré and more to play New Bloom Festival in Brisbane, where they showcased their own brand of dreamy shoegaze and emo rock. Sunbleached were recently announced to celebrate 10 Years of The Brightside alongside The Getaway PlanOcean GroveEat Your Heart Out and more, kicking off on June 1. Tickets on sale now via Oztix.

Hell Is Repetition follows on from Sunbleached‘s February single No Cure For Life, which garnered radio support from multiple triple j programs, Eleven on Double JUnearthed and community radio stations across the nation as well as editorial playlisting on Spotify and Apple Music. The single was the first to release for 2024 and is a nostalgic exploration of the band’s sound thus far, building on elements established on the quartet’s 2023 sophomore EP release, ‘Delicate Places We Hide’.

Sunbleached‘s dedication and passion for their project has seen them welcomed to the Destroy All Lines agency roster and most recently pick up new management from 27 Music (Teenage Joans, Bec Stevens, The Tullamarines).

Sunbleached is Josh Baker (vocals), Bradley Maddaford (guitar), Zane Hughes (bass) and Brent Ottley (guitar). With all members winding down from previous music projects, Sunbleached set out in 2020 to create a fresh and authentic alternative rock project ripping inspiration from decades past, reimagined for the present.

The quartet began their journey with the 2021 two-track release containing the light hearted title track Rose Tinted and the polar opposite offering, Flowers Grow From Ugly PlacesBlunt Mag affirmed early on: “The future of post-hardcore is in good hands, so long as Brisbane trailblazers Sunbleached are the ones holding it.

The band played BIGSOUND 2022 on the Destroy All Lines showcase and have made an impression playing shows with Boston Manor (UK), Holding Absence (UK), Void Of Vision, Deadlights, Mirrors, Pridelands, Dregg and Waxflower to name a few.
