I first came across the music of Nashville rockers Bullywhen Deecovered the band in a show review in March. The grunge-rock foursome is set to release its debut album, Feels Like, on June 23 and recently released a music video for track “Trying.”
Feels Like was recorded in Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio, a studio where frontwoman Alicia Bognanno interned and learned to record analog and mix to tape- all of which she did for this debut. Bognanno also serves as the band’s vocalist, songwriter, guitarist, producer and engineer.
The album is a deeply personal one, covering topics of growing up, break ups, missed periods and puking in cars.
“Sometimes I wonder if people think I’m a complete mess,” Bognanno says. “It’s not easy to put yourself out there […], but it’s true. Everyone goes through shit like that.”
Watch the video for “Trying” below and keep an ear out for Feels Like in the coming weeks…
