With the release of their debut album fast-approaching, Bleachers brought their peppy electro-pop to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night for a two-song performance.
The quintet led by frontman Jack Antonoff played a pair of songs from the forthcoming debut album “Strange Desire,” set to drop July 15 via RCA. They led with the familiar “I Wanna Get Better,” the energetic single that dropped back in February to announce the project. Wielding a guitar and dressed in his trademark red baseball cap, Antonoff steered Bleachers through the track’s bouncy chorus and many falsetto notes. Check out the video below and keep an eye out for an impressive fan-made Bleachers sign just after the two-minute mark:
Next up, Antonoff and company busted out “Shadow,” a track previously teased on the band’s hilarious telephone hotline and in live performances like this year’s Governors Ball. Check out the performance below:
