The Rhythm Bullies are a Rock & Roll band from Nashville, Tennessee. The group is led by singer and guitarist Sebastian Mogan who is profoundly vision and hearing impaired due to a genetic disorder called NF2. The band’s sound mixes Classic Rock, Synth Pop, World Music and a modern Indie aesthetic for a unique Alternative vibe of guitars, synths and infectiously catchy Pop hooks.
“Dysnomia” is the debut EP from The Rhythm Bullies, released worldwide to all major streaming services on May 14, 2021. The record’s title track and lead-off single was produced by Grammy nominated engineer Bobby Holland. The song opens on a minimalist bass, drum and vocal intro that immediately brings to mind the great late 70’s and early 80’s CBGB-era post-Punk acts like Television and Talking Heads.
Sebastian delivers a tale of broken communication and the confusion of conversation, riffing on the song’s title. According to Wikipedia, ‘dysnomia’ is a condition in which, “individuals have word retrieval failures and cannot express the words they want to say.” In the chorus the song kicks into a New Wave groove reminiscent of bands like The Cars or The Go-Gos. There’s even a nod to the Stones’ classic “Sympathy for the Devil ” with a Classical choral breakdown in the bridge. The song is a fun trek through the decades of Rock & Roll.
