Bully may well be the hottest new band in the world right now. Don’t believe us? Check out the second cut from their forthcoming debut album ‘Feels Like’, which dropped online today (via Stereogum).
On ‘Trying’, Alicia Bognanno is in typically honest form – running a stream of thought from “invisible handcuffs” and “praying for my period all week” through to questioning “everything; my focus, my figure, my sexuality”. Produced, mixed and engineered by Bognanno in Steve Albini’s studios, where she once worked as an intern, ‘Trying’ doesn’t have to do much to stand out as an especially shiny (but still pleasingly grungy) gem.
Bully are currently out on tour with JEFF The Brotherhood stateside before heading over to the UK next month. They’ll then return home for headline shows and dates with Best Coast. ‘Feels Like’ is released in North America this June.
