'Bully' (aka 'That Song off the Comet Advert') is snappy electronica underpinned by neatly interlocking drumbeats and handclap sound effects. Topped off with a veneer of Nintendocore synths, 'Bully' is bang on trend. An irresistible combination of jolting rhythms and drawling synths that's guaranteed to get you nodding away. One for the cool kids.
Meanwhile, B-side 'Mission' is spiky, buzzy electro-indie that's guilty of finding one easy rhyme and then playing it over and over, and over again, until your teeth will be set firmly on edge. Sure, you'll come away singing this one after a single listen - but you'll never, ever want to hear it again.
'Bully' is a must-hear for fans of oldschool synths and NME-friendly electro-indie but, for God's sake, don't give the B-side the chance to infect your grey matter. There really is no going back, if you do.
