A previously buried jubilation transforms the band’s sound, with Bognanno’s voice sounding revitalised and more impassioned than ever. An early highlight on the album is Every Tradition, a necessary addition to the feminist music canon that has Bognanno claiming the right over her body and rejecting motherhood.
Self-awareness underscores much of the album’s lyrics, with songs such as You frank acknowledgements of one’s limitations, and Not Ashamed an urgent assertion.
SUGAREGG is a record of catharsis and brutal honesty, powerful both in its volume and message.
SUGAREGG by Bully is out Friday Aug 21 via Sub Pop.
