ALBUM REVIEW: Discover Effortless Living, Bull


Bull have just released their debut album, Discover Effortless Living, via EMI Records in conjunction with Young Thugs. 

"The four-piece are working towards 'big things' with their easy-breezy on lo-fi retro pop." says music know-it-alls Dork. I couldn't agree more, this album is just the tip of the ice-berg.

Recorded over 2 years, the easy-going album has a haziness and nostalgic feel to it with easy going guitar work and calming vocals. The album just works. With these alt-rock and indie vibes, it's perfect for lovers of the 90s nostalgia or more current music from Circa Waves, Cassia and Blossoms.

Including singles, Love Goo, Bonzo Please, Disco Living, Green and Eugene (which is a song written about feeling being dissatisfied with yourself says Drummer Tom) the album includes 13-tracks which all have their own uniqueness. The band are inspired by their 90's heroes Pavement, Yo La Tengo and the Pixies. Recognised by other artists like Elton John and Declan McKenna, Bull are on the rise.

Talking about the album, Tom says "The title is taken from the opening lyric to the final track 'Disco Living'. We wanted to use a lyric from the album and felt like this was a good one. I first saw the words in London written on the side of a mansion being built and thought it was funny, it also ties in with ideas around class, new beginnings, a golden era of prosperity, and hoping to have life 'in the bag'.”
