York Indie quintet Bull drop their sprightly new single 'Start A New'!


After over a year away, York’s finest Slacker Indie band Bull have returned with their latest single ‘Start A New’ to accompany their gigs at Leeds’s infamous Brudenell Social Club and London’s Moth Club earlier this month.



As the title suggests, ‘Start A New’ is an instantly jovial number, building on their underrated coming-of-age debut album ‘Discover Effortless Living’ to produce a delightfully simple track that advocates for one thing: a refresh.


Following a short opening of cosy acoustic guitar, the track sizzles into life with layered vocals and Pavement-inspired instrumentation that continues throughout, generating a warm feeling of revival and acting as the musical equivalent of a morning espresso.



Bull’s July 2022 EP ‘Stuck Between the Virtual and Physical World’ was more experimental, bouncing between the Talking Heads and Clairo-infused Indie Pop. With ‘Start A New’ written amidst 2020 lockdowns, perhaps the song does not just act as a revival for fans, but for the band themselves, freed from COVID-19 restrictions and able to construct a new sonic direction, proving themselves as ones to watch in 2024.
