What brand did you get? Unsanforized raw denim will fade the fastest. Some brands specifically develop their denim to fade quickly with wear...(i.e. Flat Head, Samurai)

If you add bleach you will get a 80's acid washed effect.  Keep in mind that a raw denim will almost never match a light wash from the store because most light washes have a chemical PP on them.  I would try the sandpaper technique, wear, and a lot of wash/soaks to get as much indigo out.

Look into the sandpaper technique.
