Bully, "Feels Like"

If you've been searching for a summer '15 soundtrack, look no further. Nashville-based alt-garage rockers Bully have turned their raw rock 'n' roll angst into a debut album that will punch you right through the speakers then let you cry on its flannel-clad shoulder.

Front-woman Alicia Bognanno sings her guts out to lyrics like "Invisible handcuffs locked on me/ Been praying for my period all week" that give razor-sharp insight into the struggles of a soft-grunge twenty-something.The tracks range from upbeat and optimistic to grungy and thrashing to heavy and cerebrating, fleshing out the album with honesty and resolve.
Check out the full debut album "Feels Like" below, and catch Bully at The Stone Fox this Friday. -Caroline Bowman


Heather Bond Premiers Video for "So Long"

Since moving to Nashville and releasing an EP more than five years ago, Heather Bond has been immersing herself in the music scene. Although she was quickly coined a piano-pop starlet, Bond's latest release is a testament to her musical maturation, realignment towards lyricism and personal growth.
Bond is blossoming in Music City, and "So Long" is proof.
Dripping with sincerity and heartache, the tune crosses genre lines to create a soft, warm sound with the mass appeal of pop music, strong, soul-baring lyrics of folk and country and underlying twang of modern Nashville.

July 2015

Do some stretches, because Nashville-based Overwatcher are bringing the melodic hardcore madness, and some soft moshing is imminent.

Although a relatively new band, the guys have come out swinging with red-blooded live shows and a victory in our Band of the Month competition. The release of their debut EP "Metaphysics" will undoubtedly add fuel to their face-melting fire.
With the ample sound you'd expect from a six-piece, the guys are bringing a new vitality to the melocore scene. "Metaphysics" features the melodic exploration and merciless pulse of predecessors like Touche Amore, mewithoutyou and Defeater, with the brutal lyrical honesty and self-awareness of post-grad punk kids.
Overwatcher has created an engaging and discerning debut EP that is just as dynamic (if not more so) live. During their most recent performance at The East Room, lead vocalist Alex MacWilliam, performing through a head-wound he earned early in the set, filled up every ounce of space he could get his hands on. Often on tables and chairs, level with the crowd, even lying down, MacWilliam lead his crew through an intense, energetic set. Whether the audience is of five or 5,000, the performance remains wholehearted, and there is definitely something to be said for that.
Overwatcher is putting a refreshing spin on melodic hardcore, and "Metaphysics" is a testament to their musical prowess and clear passion for the genre. And, I can only assume this is just the beginning.  -Caroline Bowman
