Meet Bleitch, an LA-based duo made up of Maddie Deutch (daughter of actress Lea Thompson—the mom in Back to the Future) and Piers Baron (also known by his DJ name “Baron”). Above is the premiere of their video for sly banger “Paint By Numbers," which, with its Moroder-like synth lines, clap-boom beats and bass, and visuals which splice glitter, explosions of powdered paint, and broken glass, it's a fitting acompaniment to a song that also happens to be a confident kiss-off. Not all break ups leave you broken, and wriggling from the grip of a controlling partner is a kind of freedom that tastes particularly sweet. Although this is only the band’s second single, you may recognize their first song, “This Is Our Youth,” from the final season of True Blood. What's next for the pair? Who knows, but this is a very promising start.
