Alicia Bognanno’s lockdown has been an eventful one. Singing for Bully has hotter up over the last few weeks as the need for album promotion has intensified. It has seen Bognanno doing her best to reach out from lockdown.
Bully have done a great job too! Releasing the videos for ‘Where To Start’ and ‘Every Tradition’ earlier in the month were particular highlights. But this performance is just stunning.
The new album SUGAREGG, the band’s third record and is due out for release on 21st August via Sub Pop and comes jam-packed full of the kind of energy Bully bring to everything they do.
If you needed proof of how authentic Bognanno and co. really are then you need only watch this brilliant cover of Mazzy Star’s classic track ‘Fade Into You’.
Recorded on video from lockdown, Bognanno’s vocals are as silky as ever as her light strumming adds more tender vulnerability until the grunge-heavy chorus comes bristling with distortion.
Earlier in the year, Bognanno released two other covers, one of Nirvana’s ‘About A Girl’ and one of Orville Peck’s ‘Turn To Hate’.
Below you can listen to Bully’s cover of Mazzy Star, ‘Fade Into You’.
