“I question everything, my focus, my figure, my sexuality,” Bully frontwoman and songwriter Alicia Bognanno confesses on the band’s latest single “Trying”. Her personal insecurities are sometimes expressed with a wounded whimper, while others are rattled off in the form of explosive frustration accompanied by harsh riffs that seem to tear right through the speakers. At the very core, though, is Bognanno, a human who is attempting so very sincerely to make sense of this big, bad world. During the chorus, she howls with the little energy she has left to give: “I am trying to hide from my mind!/ I am trying all the time!”

Listen in below.

“Trying” will appear on the Nashville alt rockers’ debut album, Feels Like, due out on June 23rd via StarTime International/Columbia. In support, the band will tour the US and UK, including festival sets at Northside and Pitchfork.
