I fucking love this. Lo-fi Americana that’s upbeat and fun. Gorgeous Bully has this simple, infectious, Coma Cinema feel, but with much more of a harsh crunch to his sound. And a lot less emo. It’s Vagrant records teen angst ala Saves The Day/The Get Up Kids, with hints of Weezer’s Blue album sprinkled about just for kicks. Which is a refreshing change of pace from the chilled out sex beat vibes I generally lean towards.
With catchy lyrics like, “Just who do you think you are, some fucking supernova,” that speak to you almost directly, I’m a fan without even trying. I’d like to think Gorgeous Bully has that Cloud Nothings 2011 album effect. It’s pop-punk nostalgia at it’s finest.
The Young and Obese drops Feb 20th via Art is Hard Records, and will be available as a ltd edition cassette, packaged in a custom designed cigarette packet. Be sure to peep the pic of the packaging below. Pretty sweet. Pre-order HERE.
