Review Fix chats with Katie Bully, who discusses the bandâ€™s new track, Touche, as well as their goals for 2021.
Review Fix: How did you get involved in music?
Katie Bulley: It was when I was a young competitive dancer. It was their where a really got the concept of song structure and feeling the rhythm.
Review Fix: What’s your creative process like?
Bulley: Well I usually write the skeleton of the songs, try to write catchy hooks and guitar solos. Once I have the â€œskeletonâ€ done… Lauren (drummer) brings it to life like Frankenstein. Itâ€™s really up to her which songs we use for the band I just throw them out there
Review Fix: What inspires you?Â
Bulley: Love, music, and hooligans
Review Fix: What does music mean to you?
Bulley: Itâ€™s the only reason Iâ€™m alive today. Itâ€™s a lifesaver! Itâ€™s therapy! Itâ€™s my obsession.
Review Fix: How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard you?
Bulley: if Jack White and Gwen Stefani had a baby that would be me and if Travis Barker taught everything he knows to someone that would be Lauren
Review Fix: How are your live shows different from your studio work?
Bulley: There is a freedom we exude when weâ€™re live. That, and we cheer each other on more.
Review Fix: What inspired your latest single?
Bulley: Well we did write it back in 2010 so at the time there was a bar in Hamilton called ChÃ¨. And the owner and I were friends and one time he said â€œIâ€™m creepinâ€™ it realâ€ so I asked him if I could use that in a song so heâ€™s the â€œcaptianâ€ in the song. And in the song it says â€œTouchÃ¨â€ when really weâ€™re hearing â€œTo ChÃ¨â€
Review Fix: What are your goals for 2021?
Bulley: Weâ€™re just hoping for health and for our record to turn some heads that have a lot of influence. That, and working on new material.
Review Fix: Anything else you’d like to add?
Bulley: The album is out January 29th we hope you enjoy some raspy vocals mixed with a ton of vibrato. Youâ€™ll love the drums and harmonies Lauren added. She went to school for music! I didnâ€™t but Iâ€™m street smart so I think we mesh well.
