Bane’s World
is Chill.

Long Beach native Shane Blanchard, better known as Bane’s World, makes music that lovingly captures the sunny vibe of his California hometown. Laid-back and dreamy, his sound is at the forefront of a lo-fi movement known as bedroom pop.

In 2018 alone, Bane’s World played sets at iconic sold-out music festivals, Coachella and Camp Flog Gnaw. Blanchard has come this far off only one release: his very Chill album, Drowsy, released in 2016. In our ‘You Feel Me?’ podcast interview, he mentions an affinity for “sad love songs,” which accurately describes his work on Drowsy. A guitar aficionado, Blanchard can clearly shred, but he also knows how to make his guitar gently weep. Even solos become another relaxing layer in his silky smooth rhythms. It’s a vibe true to Blanchard’s nature. A peaceful soul who prefers playing in an intimate setting, Bane’s World is a perfect fit for this month’s mood.
