Win Tickets To Bully!
Everybody loves Bully! The Nashville group have responded to today's oft-repeated mantra, "Rock Is Dead," with a defiant, upraised middle finger. They fearlessly invoke the glory days of grunge, and thanks to the songwriting talent of singer/guitarist/songwriter/recording engineer Alicia Bognanno, they do not fall into a pure nostalgia trap (even if their new album is on Sub Pop and is titled Losing). As Easy Street Online/Old Rookie reviewer Ian Bremner puts it: "Alicia Bognanno’s lyrics are straight out of a diary and delivered with as much angst as sincerity. It’s no wonder why Sub Pop, a label known for Seattle’s 90’s grunge explosion and most notably, Nirvana, jumped at the chance to sign Bully ... The raspy howl of Bognanno isn’t too far removed from what made Kurt Cobain such a symbol for young rebels, but Bully never veers quite as dark. Though the thrashing guitars, building drums and emotional delivery are right on par, what makes Bognanno unique is her ability to create these angry sounding punk songs so damn catchy. If it weren’t for the heavy fuzz and grinding guitars, they would actually make great pop songs. Cultivating that punk-pop ratio is pure Bully wheelhouse."
