Saying goodbye to bad energy: Bæm drop indie-pop realness on ‘bleach your hair and write songs about me’

Bæm are back with an intriguing song dropped on New Years Day, that will get you in a thoughtful mood on ‘bleach your hair and write songs about me‘.

Bæm are a flourishing Finnish-American alt-pop girl duo formed by Emilia Lahtela and Bailey Krawczyk. They met in Sydney, Australia and their creative journey has lasted for three years as they aim to make music that triggers authentic aesthetic responses, to hug their listeners souls.

With the recording process made possible with a terrific small and loyal team, Bailey was able to add her vocals just before she unfortunately had to leave to head back to the USA for a while.

Their illuminating style slides gracefully in a real song that speaks about a breakup that hurts so bad. The story of being so young as you kissed them in your car and then just like that, it was all over and you felt like your time was wasted,

Sometimes things happen so fast you barely have time to take a breath. You have moved onto feeling upset about this whole experience as you realized that they were so controlling and now you feel like they are good riddance as you wouldn’t want to ever see them again.

Their fascinating energy is raw and genuine, the lyrics are well-made and the vocals stream through your emotions as you recall being around narcissists before and how you do your best to ignore and avoid them now.

bleach your hair and write songs about me‘ from Bæm is a top track that shows that it is okay to be single for a while, rather than being with someone that is so unhealthy for you.

Sometimes you need to break free and let everything that happened soak in, so you can wash off all the self-doubt that was thrown at you unfairly.

“It was begging to be written. We know we speak not just for us but for many people all over the world” – Steven Caperna

With an innate ability to provide thunderous melodies and incredibly well-structured lyrics that are hard hitting and honest, this is a band that doesn’t take themselves overly serious either. Their funny video about the current political landscape in Australia is an inside look into how so many people are feeling. After appearing to do so well with the virus, this is a country that is currently in the grips of a new wave that frustrates so many. Their appeal also extends globally as many of us are feeling exactly the same thing and millions will be more careful about who they vote for next time.

With the band all on the same page despite the age differences, they show that it’s all about good music that is easy to sing with and by keeping things lighthearted, this is a new track that is exactly what we needed to hear. Things are not okay right now and real leaders need to step up and do what they were elected to do. Lead, not spin webs around us like a busy spider.

It’s Not Ok‘ by the Adelaide indie rock band From Scratch is one of those songs you can’t stop listening to as its excellent music video shows what can be done during these horrid times. Music and comedy mixed together, is a welcome addition to 2020.
