Bulletproof

  • Lyrics
  • This track was released as the lead single from Echoes on June 1, 2016. It was recorded at House Of Loud in New Jersey with David Bendeth, a man with a CV that includes records from bands like Papa Roach, All Time Low and Paramore.
  • Frontman Gus Wood has described this in interviews as "a big anthemic rock song." Asked by Artist Direct what it is about this style that speaks to the band, Wood replied:

    "I think it's more just what happens naturally when we write. We are not necessarily the world's most subtle band, we like big songs that kind of smash you in the head and make you sing, that's the goal. I don't know why, I've never really questioned. We just kind of write and that's what happens."
