Don’t let the name fool you—Bully might be rough around the edges, but they play sticky-sweet grunge-punk with emotionally honest lyrics. After dropping their critically acclaimed debut Feels Like in 2015, last year the Nashville band released Losing via Sub Pop Records. It’s another hard-driving record of rough-and-tumble rock guided by Alicia Bognanno’s powerhouse vocals. Two albums in, it’s clear that Bully can masterfully combine punk fuzz and catchy pop hooks, and the result is infectiously energetic.
