Nashville-based indie band Bully is bringing back grunge and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
It’s so so so refreshing to have a band that kicks it old school. Do you see the irony there? Don’t get me wrong, I love the new, alternative electro-genres of alt-J, Glass Animals, Purity Ring and many others. But, I’m getting a little tired of experimental music. All you really need in this world is an angry singer and a killer guitarist, amirite? We are in the era of live mixing and technobeats. Garage bands, who have nothing but instruments and mics, are what this generation needs. Without being derivative, Bully is reinstating this old style of music (yes, 1990 was 25 years ago so I can call it old). They take their personal stories and express them with the frustration and rebellion of the 90s grunge era.
