Born and raised in Chicago, alternative artist/songwriter Ally Nicholas is bound to take your breath away with her unique, pitch perfect vocals. That’s especially true in her new single “Bullets”.
Bullets is an intimate look into the struggle of dealing with mental illness while being in a relationship. Essentially, this song is about the dissonance that’s created when you’re struggling and want to let someone in, but don’t know if you should or how. Throughout the verses Ally details some of the issues and insecurities she’s grappling with, as well as her suspicion that her lover may be growing tired of not understanding her situation. The chorus is a swaggering demand, almost as if Nicholas is mid-breakdown telling her partner what little they can do to comfort her, as she feels she’s beyond saving.
Alternating between a cool indifference and explosive passion, Bullets is an alternative rock/pop song with an untouchable, apathetic confidence. Produced by @_diegoferrera , the song draws from bands like Deftones and Paramore while also infusing modern elements from emo rappers like Lil Peep. Bullets perfectly captures the nostalgia of 90s/00s alternative rock while also pushing the genre forward, creating a new breed of alternative rock for every kid who’s just trying to make it through the day.
