WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT "LOST PARADE":
"Lost Parade" - Hall of Fame DJ Marco Collins: “MY GOD! That voice. Do yourself a favor, press play on the band’s new record, 'Lost Parade' and become enchanted.”
Bleachbear named “Best Underage Band” by Seattle Weekly: "Bleachbear's music is a style of dreamy pop/grunge/folk rock as heard on Bleachbear’s superb debut, Lost Parade-- catchy melodies juxtaposed against Tigerlily’s tear-stained lyrics. Such adolescent angst has a body count—the hearts of hundreds of fans.”
"Lost Parade" - Eclectic Arts: “A stunning release. The more you listen to it, the more it unveils itself, the layers within the music and lyrics. . .When they're headlining The Paramount in Seattle, you can thank me for turning you on to them today."
"Lost Parade" - UK Morphettes: "Today’s Song Of The Day is 'Letters At Your Door' by Bleachbear...To be making music like this at such an early age really bodes well for their future. Especially singer/songwriter Tigerlily. These are beautiful songs. They remind me a little bit of First Aid Kit and at times Tigerlily’s voice reminds me of Natalie Merchant..."
"Lost Parade" - Parent Map Magazine "The album’s eight tracks juxtapose themes of teen love and heartbreak with a touch of grunge’s darkness, all against a glittery folk-pop backdrop."
"Lost Parade" - Seattle Weekly: “Bleachbear will hit you with its heartwarming earnestness… Within its eight songs, singer/songwriter Tigerlily turns the poignancy of being 15 into something productive, progressing along a narrative arc that tackles everything from unrequited love to . . . lost love (it’s all that matters, anyway). The upbeat 'Down by the Forest' depicts two young lovers running away together a la Moonrise Kingdom. The album closes with the somber 'Stop Holding On,' a track that captures the sad and beautiful pain of falling out of love. What Lost Parade succeeds at best is creating a mood—one that takes the listener back to a time of butterflies, first kisses, and note-passing.”
