The Bullitts – Supercool (26th March)
“Evocative, provocative, highly imaginative and utterly individual” – just some of the words used to describe The Bullitts who burst on the scene with first official single Supercool. The rock tinged, ‘80s sounding Super Cool, with its Stranglers overtones and staccato vocal is the kind of intelligent, sample free pop which defines The Bullitts.  The track was recently used by Ozwald Boateng to close London Fashion Week, while Cee Lo pleaded, unsuccessfully, to have it for his own album. It’s the unpredictable approach to composing that makes writer, producer, film-maker and musician Jeymes Samuel (Jay Electronica, Estelle, Passion Pit, Roisin Murphy) so exciting as an artist.  Debut album They Die Before Dawn, due in spring 2012, already has industry ears pricking up and includes collaborations with an incredible line up, such as Jay Electronica, Idris Elba, Tori Amos, Mos Def and Lucy Liu, who narrates the whole album.

Biography
THE BULLITTS
SUPERCOOL
12th March

‘One of the baddest bands in the land.’ Rap Radar

“Evocative, provocative, highly imaginative and utterly individual” – just some of the words used to describe new group The Bullitts who burst on the scene with first official single Supercool, which is released on 12th March.

The rock tinged, ‘80s sounding Super Cool, with its Stranglers overtones and staccato vocal is the kind of intelligent, sample free pop which defines The Bullitts.  A sure-fire smash, the track was recently used by Ozwald Boateng to close London Fashion Week, while Cee Lo pleaded, unsuccessfully, to have it for his own album.

"That's the anthem for the civilian,” says Jeymes Samuel, the brainchild behind the group, “That's the anthem for the podgy nerds who aren’t in the gym; we're all cool, we're all superheroes. When Spiderman takes off the mask, he's Peter Parker.”

It’s the unpredictable approach to composing that makes writer, producer, film-maker and musician Jeymes Samuel (Jay Electronica, Estelle, Passion Pit, Roisin Murphy) so exciting as an artist. 

Debut album They Die Before Dawn, due in spring 2012, already has industry ears pricking up and includes collaborations with an incredible line up, including Jay Electronica, Idris Elba, Tori Amos, Mos Def and Lucy Liu, who narrates the whole album.

Close Your Eyes, the band’s initial low-key release, was an instant hit with tastemakers, and was quickly crowned ‘Hottest Record in the World’ by influential Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe. It went on to be MistaJam’s ‘Hot Jam’ record of the week as well as record of the week on the Nick Grimshaw show.

With an exciting no holds barred approach to their craft, The Bullitts ideology ignores the rulebook in favour of imagination, innovation and true individuality.
