    Jack Antonoff was profiled by Entertainment Weekly:

    No artist shaped the sound of pop music in 2017 more than Jack Antonoff — if only because Jack Antonoff practically was the sound of pop music in 2017. Whether he was putting out music with his solo project, Bleachers, or writing with artists such as Taylor Swift, Lorde, and St. Vincent, the prolific producer was all over your favorite records this year.

    i may get better but we won't ever get well Prestigious

    personally i really dislike Antonoff's style but it is interesting to see a semi-dethroning of the Dr. Luke/Max Martin radio style

    I'm the opposite. I love his scatterbrain.

  6. If you don't think Steel Train would sound exactly like Bleachers right now you're only kidding yourselves.

    I cant believe he doesnt think he has a sound. Most of the songs on the new bleachers/lorde/swift records are basically interchangeable soundwise, and i think swifts actually suffered from it.

    I saw an article posted on here the other week, I think he's busy with a kid now and writing a Broadway show (?).

    If new Steel Train sounds like Bleachers, please don't bring back Steel Train.

    Apologies. No edge intended. I liked Steel Train a lot and don't really care for Bleachers.

    Or maybe. I'll just go with this.
    Cool. Very edgy.
  16. Good one.

  18. Dunno why you didn’t see them when they were a band and no one cared.

    I decided to give both Bleachers albums a listen on a whim a few weeks ago and I loved them, can't believe I've been sleeping on them so long

    I should clarify that I love both the Bleachers and Lorde records, but I do suspect that my lack of interest in the new Swift record has at least a little to do with fatiguing on the sound altogether.

    Haven't yet, didn't know he was involved with that one. Will have to take a listen.
