Jack Antonoff, the singer and mastermind behind indie-rock side project Bleachers, will inherently find it difficult to pull himself out from the shadows of his extremely popular main band, fun., for whom he plays lead guitar. But with Bleacher's debut album, Strange Desires, Antonoff has found himself a new and unique niche away from fun.'s minimal pop style.

Other than a penchant for breaking normal pop music conventions, the two bands are so different that there is very little comparison between the two. I would say, however, that there is a slight hint of Antonoff's first band, the punk-leaning indie rockers Steel Train. The influence can be heard in some of the soaring melodies of Strange Desires, which instead of being done with clear-cut vocals and guitar riffs, uses synth and distortion to get the effect.
