"The band’s second album, Losing, is grimier and less sugar-slick than their 2015 debut, Feels Like, where songs like “Trying” and “Milkman” offered hooks so punchy they bordered on pop-punk. Here, by contrast, Bognanno seems frozen in the moment where she’s poised to jump but hasn’t left the ground yet, tensed and ready to strike as she sings out the snags in her interpersonal malaise. More second-person pronouns pepper her lyrics than ever, whether she’s figuring out how to traverse a toxic relationship or nursing one hell of a crush. Her sandpaper scream is still the most immediately arresting element of Bully’s music; when, on “Running," she seethes, “You say I’m running/But I don’t care/I’ll admit it/I get anxious too/Just like you,” it lands less like a confession and more like an uppercut."
