DYSNOMIA

The Rhythm Bullies

Dysnomia is the debut single by Nashville rock band the Rhythm Bullies. Influenced by Post-Punk and Goth of the early 80s, Dysnomia is a hard-rocking space opera that takes the listener through bare, bass-driven landscapes to powerful and bright choruses then to a celestial finale. Written in 2020, it’s opening line, “Hell is empty. Look around you”, depicts the chaos of modern times. Dysnomia was Produced by Grammy nominated Engineer Bobby Holland.

The Other Side Reviews:

Mogan’s vocals have a slightly retro feeling in with a touch of post-punk and the 80s. There is a poetic vibe to the lyrics as he draws you into the space opera of the track. The story of the lyrics leads you to the powerful chorus that has a catchy refrain that you might just to chant. While the melody takes a space edge, the vocals remain stable while pumping a reflection on the world into your veins. The choir brings an ethereal beauty to the last moments of the single.

 

2021 FV Music Blog: 2021 Review

"An energetic and driving opening greets the listener. The lead vocals take the reins of the track and are filled with passion and emotion. We adore the full band sound; it fills the sonic spectrum with colour and intensity. 

In addition, the captivating lyrics reach out and connect with the listener. We love the chorus, which is heavier than the verse, with a catchy nature that will have the listener reaching for the repeat button!”
