Alicia Bognanno has made a name for herself as an engineer, producer and soundperson across Nashville’s clubs and studios; however, her latest project has the Bognanno using her technical skills as the guitarist, vocalist, producer and engineer of the quartet that she leads, Bully. And the Nashville-based quartet has quickly built up quite a profile for themselves as they’ve opened for Best Coast, fellow Tennesseans Those Darlins, Superchunk, Drowners, Kevin Drew and others. 

The quartet’s recently released self-titled EP has been receiving quite a bit of attention for it’s pop-oriented punk focus; in some way, the latest single “Brainfreeze” a warm blast of summer, it sounds much like a grittier version of the Go-Go’s, as the single has a bratty, yet sneering hook that manages to be absolutely infectious.
