Grimes Makes Loneliness Sound Fun As Hell On This New Bleachers Song
Claire Boucher makes joyful power pop with Jack Antonoff, guitarist of fun.
Ahead of its official debut later today on HBO's Girls, Bleachers (that's the side project of fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff) and Grimes have shared their great new pop song, "Entropy." This is the second time Boucher has teamed up with Antonoff; last year, she appeared on his debut solo album for a moody cut called "Take It Away." Despite the lyrics being a bit of a bummer (Everything I've ever known is wrong, oh, what's the matter with me?), "Entropy" is the flipside of the coin, full of trickling piano and guitar riffs and an anthemic beat. It's exactly the kind of sky-high pop you'd expect from a guy who co-wrote Taylor Swift's "Out Of The Woods" and an artist who recently revealed she scrapped a whole album "cuz it was depressing." Hands in the air, let's sing it loud: a lack of love or empathy leave me lonely!
