Bleach Lab : Counting Empties

Perfect songs deserve perfect visuals, Bleach Lab certainly have a knack for capturing emotions with graceful understatement and poetic beauty, and they do so yet again on their new track ‘Counting Empties’ which arrives replete with a stunning video.

The band whom we tipped for great things back in 2020 announce their debut album ‘Lost in a Rush of Emptiness,‘ which is reassuringly the most Bleach Lab-sounding title you could hope for, and it’s due on September 22nd via Nettwerk. The album was produced by Catherine Marks, known for her work with PJ Harvey, Foals, The Big Moon, and the new boygenius album. They’ve also announced a headline tour.

‘Counting Empties’ builds on themes of heartbreak and isolation laid out in their previous single ‘Indigo’, as the band reflect on “how having a difficult relationship with alcohol can hinder romantic and personal relationships. A battle with your own mind to do better and a vulnerability of asking someone patience and forgiveness, although you may not feel you deserve it”
