Cash Cash Addresses Mental Health on Inspiring New Dance/Pop Crossover “Bleach (move on)” with JP for the First Time on Vocal Duties
After their release from January – “Anyway,” featuring RuthAnne, preceded by an almost two-year hiatus, the platinum trio Cash Cash is back with their deeply personal and yet hopeful new single “Bleach (move on).” The song is a unique fusion of emo-alt and electronic dance music, unusual and yet well-executed by the veteran electronic group. With angsty, soulful vocals belting out lyrics about mental health struggles, “Bleach (move on)” starts out like an alt-pop song from the early aughts, but Cash Cash quickly weaves in their signature sound with the track’s upbeat progressive style during its chorus and interludes. Jean Paul, who sings on a Cash Cash‘s record for the very first time, Alex and Samuel bear their hearts through this relevant and heartfelt sonic confession, one that will be a hit on the radio and during the summer festival season. “Bleach (move on)” is Cash Cash‘s second release on Ultra Records/Sony Music after signing to the label in 2022. Read below what they have to say about the inspiration behind it.
“We once heard someone says: ‘Your problems are like holding a glass of water; it’s easy if you only hold on to it for a little as your arm is barely affected. If you hold on to it all day and night, your arm will eventually become very sore, throbbing, and numb, barely able to hold the glass.’ The creation of ‘Bleach (move on)‘ was realizing that and finally learning to put the fucking glass down and to literally move on. Calling the last few years a challenge would be an understatement. Many of us found ourselves either running away or chasing something, or just lost in the shuffle. If you’re not one of those people, then God Bless as you’re one of the few lucky ones. For the rest of us emo kids, sanity is something we’re constantly chasing, and mental health is something we’re always running from. It takes addressing it face to face to improve it, and only after that does sanity become attainable. Writing ‘Bleach (move on)‘ was our way of addressing it; continuing to hear it is our reminder and therapy, and hopefully, playing it for all of you will be yours.” – Cash Cash
