In the band’s early days, Bleachers’ Antonoff referred to the project as a hidden alter-ego. While he was busy fronting 2012’s favorite radio-pop group Fun, he was also writing what would become Bleachers’ breakout single: “I Wanna Get Better.”

Three albums and a decade later, Jack Antonoff is now one of the most influential voices in pop music. Though many people probably don’t know it. Antonoff does the secretive, pop-music genius in the shadows better than anyone else. While his own band remains mainly on the “indie” circuit, he’s simultaneously raking in Grammys (six to be exact) and producing mega-hits with the likes of Taylor Swift, Lorde, Lana Del Rey, Florence + The Machine, and gobs more.

While Bleachers may not get the recognition of some of Antonoff’s more famous co-writers, he puts his heart and soul into their music. It’s apparent in their ecstatic live shows and their heartfelt take on jangly, ’80s synth-rock.
