Jack Antonoff (previously of Fun. and Steel Train) went solo as Bleachers, writing for Taylor Swift’s 1989 and releasing his debut full length in 2014. Moving to Columbia for his sophomore album, Gone Now plays like a soundtrack to 80s films such as The Breakfast Club, uplifting, empowering and scarred synth pop.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 6th June 2017
Jack Antonoff's latest project Bleachers' Gone Now sounds like a full on party, but these are songs steeped in nostalgia, pain, and finding a way back home. The album is chock full of radio friendly sounding songs that should propel Gone Now to the top of the indie charts, but themes of loss dominate. "I Miss Those Days" and "Everybody Lost Somebody" are hook laden sing alongs, but mourn family lost, trying to get home, portending thunder, and revealing one's identity and feelings - the image of discarded clothes recurs in multiple places.
