Decent Criminal release new music video BLEACHED


California-based rock quartet, Decent Criminal instantly transport you back to the 90s with their nostalgic surf-rock sound and single “Bleached.”

They just released the music video for it this week.
Lead vocalist, Tristan Martinez said, “'Bleached' is a non-fiction long distance love story: two dreamers infatuated with each other, romanticizing what could be if only distance and circumstance weren’t in the way,” which is oddly fitting for this time.
In 2014, brothers Hunter and Tristan Martinez took what was already an active touring act, and rebuilt it from the ground up, giving the band a new sound and set of players. 

Hunter, the band’s only original member, switched from guitar/vocals to drums, and the band never skipped a beat.

Tristan, who was at one point the band’s fill in bass player, took on the key roles of guitarist and primary songwriter.

The two brothers enlisted the services of bassist/vocalist Alex Kouninos, and later guitarist/vocalist Brian Gellman to round out the sound.

The new band quickly developed their own style, with unique three part vocal harmony permeating their recordings, and live performances.

In 2018, Jesse Hernandez (Caskitt) joined to entourage on 
bass guitar to complete the current lineup.

Since the overhaul, Decent Criminal has released a 7” split w/ Screaming Mimi’s in 2015, a self-titled debut LP in 2016, "Bloom” full length LP via Dodgeball Records in 2017 and most recently “Bliss” LP (via Bearded Punk/Wiretap Records).

Over the past few years, Decent Criminal has picked up some serious momentum, thanks to a combination of prolific songwriting, and a relentless drive to tour and play live.
