The Airborne Toxic Event’s multi-instrumentalist, Anna Bulbrook and The Duke Spirit’s guitarist, Marc Sallis found themselves repeatedly crossing paths between New York, Paris and London during tours, and over time they bonded over their mutual love of 80s and 90s new wave and shoegaze – to the point that they decided to collaborate together in a side project, The Bulls

Although they’re in the studio finishing up work on their debut EP, their first single “Come Unwound” has a dreamy, 60s girl-led pop feel that is also reminiscent of Dum Dum Girls – that is until the gorgeous strings make an appearance to remind listeners that shoegaze often owes a great debt to the production values of Phil Spector. The most important thing is that the song is a lovely song that seems perfect for a damp, autumnal afternoon.
