New Release & Video: Stella Donnelly – Mechanical Bull

To celebrate signing to Secretly Canadian, Stella Donnelly has unveiled her new single and video for Mechanical Bull…

Talking about the track, Donnelly states: “Mechanical Bull is dedicated to people who work in hospitality who have to deal with customers, especially drunk ones, harassing them and making objectifying comments,” says Donnelly. “I wrote this about my experience working in bars and it was a nice way to release some of the frustration I had!”

After trying to capture Mechanical Bull in a studio, Donnelly opted for the raw approach. All six tracks on debut EP, Thrush Metal were recorded in her boyfriend’s lounge room, written over the space of two years; a musical undertaking resulting in a bold and unapologetic repertoire of songs which has forged Donnelly to the forefront of the new guard of Australian songwriters
