FORMER BULLIES – “STRANGER”
Video taster of the new LP from Manchester’s lo-fi stalwarts.
We at Towed by The Ghost have been huge fans of fuzzy, garage-pop trio Former Bullies for many years, so we’re thrilled to announce the release of their latest album, “Stranger”, next month.
Though they’ve been playing prolifically around the North for years, with the odd jaunt further afield from time to time, their recorded output is somewhat stingier, and they haven’t put anything out since 2011. Masters of wistful pop nuggets with life-affirming melody, “Stranger” sees Former Bullies hit new heights of lonesome, gold tunes that don’t even dream of reaching 3 minutes.
A first taster of the record can be had by checking the video (below) for the title tune below – probably the sunniest slice of the record’s melancholy pie. We’d love it to be shared as much as possible, so please do add it to your site!
We’ll be sending EPKs for the whole album shortly, but please do get in touch if you require any additional info. Another (animated) video will accompany the album’s release, which we would be keen to have premiered somewhere. The band will additionally be available for interviews, features etc.
