FRESH JUICE: BULLY – RIGHT

Posted on: April 21st, 2017 by Pat Trotter

Back in January when Donald stumbled into the Oval Office, Secretly Group- which encompasses a collection of independent American labels- embarked on their ‘Our First 100 days’ project. The project sees a different artist debut a new track every day for the first 100 days of the Trump presidency via Bandcamp. Today marks the 91st day of the project but today’s Juicy tune came out earlier in the week as at number 88 and its a rough as guts cut from Nashville indie rockers Bully  and the song is called Right.

Quiet is not necessarily a word that fits neatly into the same sentence as Bully, but it has been a little while since we’ve heard new music from the four piece. Packing all the familiar traits of a good Bully track, Right is a high octane head banger and is defiantly on the heavier end of the Bully spectrum. Kicking into gear early with punk paced drums and a whiny guitar hook, each member of Bully match each others intensity and maintain a fierce stride for the duration of the track. Not sure what Bully were up to in their two year spell but Alicia Bognnano’s voice sounds louder and better than ever. What I love about Right is how coarse Bognnano’s voice sounds. The vocals have been recorded and produced in such a way that makes Bognnano’s pipes sound like they’re too heavy for the speakers to handle. If you love Bully but hate bullies then give this track a hurl and subscribe to the ‘Our First 100 days’ project as all money raised “will go directly to handful of non-profit organisations fighting for inclusion and equality”.

Not sure if there if a sophomore album in tow but this will do for now.
