Track Premiere: Holy Pinto—’Bully’

Holy Pinto has gone through a couple major changes since its inception. In an interview from earlier this year, songwriter Aymen Saleh explains that he moved from his home of Canterbury England to Milwaukee on a whim, and has operated the band out of there ever since. With the re-location came the departure of his bandmate Ryan Hurley, so now Holy Pinto is entirely Saleh’s venture. However, you wouldn’t be able to tell that Holy Pinto is a one-man-band on their latest single, “Bully,” a soaring piece of maximalist pop-rock that crosses the sleek grandiosity of Angels & Airwaves with the swaying alt-pop-punk of Manchester Orchestra or later-era Say Anything.

The track is part of a three-month singles series dubbed the “Holy Trinity” Singles Club, an easy excuse for Saleh to release a new song every month. You can stream “Bully” below and check out the other two songs in the “Trinity” after the jump:
