Bully – “Lose You” (ft. Soccer Mommy): Jayson’s DJ Pick of the Week


Jayson’s DJ pick this week is “Lose You” by Bully featuring Soccer Mommy. This sonically immaculate tune was released last week following the band’s 2020 album, SUGAREGG.

Frontwoman Alicia Bognanno formed the Nashville-native band in 2013 after graduating from Middle Tennessee State University. Bognanno discovered a passion for audio engineering during high school, which lead her to work as a recording engineer at Electrical Audio in Chicago. After moving to Nashville the singer paired up with guitarist Clayton Parker and bassist Reece Lazarus to form Music City’s iconic indie/grunge rock band Bully. Their self-titled debut album was met with undivided critical acclaim, and the band has since gone on to earn spots in competitive music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Pitchfork Music Festival.

“Lose You” is a refreshing, high-energy indie rock track with heavy pop-punk and grunge influence. The track marks the first time the band has collaborated with another vocalist, let alone another huge name in the indie rock genre. Bognanno explains, “When ‘Lose You’ came about it was the first time I’ve considered having someone else sing on a Bully song. I love Sophie’s voice and have always admired everything she does so to me it was a no-brainer”. The singer’s smooth vocals paired with Soccer Mommy’s (Sophia Allison) incredible harmonies make this track destined to be a hit.

Lyrically, “Lose You” discusses the pain and reality of impermanence in life. Eventually, everything comes to an end and Bognanno reflects on this with emotive lyrics like “I could think about it all night, run it over ’til it sounds right, I’d do anything to get it back now, tell me what I gotta burn down”.

For local fans, be sure to catch the band playing at The Basement East on March 16, kicking off their spring tour. Stay updated on all things Bully via their website here.
