Canadian garage poppers JPNSGRLS are back with their first new song since their debut album, Circulation, back in 2014. Their sophomore album will release in the summer and this is the first taste of the band's new music and it's a great one. "Bully For You" is a feminist song and an empathetic expression of male sympathy over the every day misogyny that women must face. The lyricist, Charlie Kerr, was inspired by the personal life-experiences of “his many awesome, outspoken and inspiring female friends” and the desire to “be on the right side of history” as an ally to all women.

Singer and lyricist Charlie Kerr says that "'Bully For You' is an observational protest song about the ceaseless, unfair treatment of women from the point of view of a cisgendered man. It explores the passivity and complacency of misogyny in society throughout the ages, from the beheading of Anne Boleyn to modern day disrespect for female lives and bodies around the world."
