Bullrider are sitting on top of the world with their latest single and (literally) head-bobbing video Happy Where I Am — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
They’ve got a lot going on to back up that claim: Together since 2012, the Winnipeg foursome boast some serious talent in Bobby Desjarlais (The Bokononists, Attica Riots), Ben Ferguson (Ash Koley), Tom Sinnott and Chris Peluk (Alverstone, Mad Young Darlings). Together, they deliver a complete and complex palate of sonic sojourns — from fun-loving to dark and heartbroken, haunting to near-psychedelic in its experience — that have graced stages at The Forks, Harvest Moon Festival, Dauphin’s Country Fest, ManyFest and more.
They delivered their 14-track debut LP Hidden Gems And The Love Of Another last year. Like Happy Where I Am, the release’s previous singles deliver a similar, existential and observational theme of just … well, making the best of where you’re at. Dying, Live My Life and The News serve as prime examples of the band’s directness and simplicity. “We’re all about needing less to live and be happy,” Desjarlais says. “I just gotta breathe, sleep, eat, and feel … The rest? You can keep, thanks.”
