Nashville rock trio Bully has unveiled their latest video “Focused” as a way to warm up your ears before heading out to their world tour. It’s a minimalist rock piece intertwined with grunge and alternative elements that puts you in pensive state. The soothing voice of Alicia Bognanno walks you through the highs and lows of growing up like the animated character in the video. Watch below:

Director Rozalina Burkova explained that the video is “loosely based on the theme of coming of age and the ups and downs friendships and relationships.”

“Focused” is from the trio’s sophomore album, Losing, which was released back in October 20th, 2017. Bully will start touring North America and Europe in a few days, so make sure to check them out:
