Toronto’s Lenny Bull has had a fascinating career trajectory, from ballet dancer to country singer to rockstar. Her new single, “Elevator,” is firmly in the latter category, it’s a direct and blistering rock track about being stuck in a bad situation.
“Relationships can be a drag. I want you to listen and feel energized instead of drained; motivated instead of weary,” says Bull.
Bull was on a walk with a friend who was going through a breakup. They found themselves discussing the relationship for awhile before her friend expressed how “fucking tired” she was of talking about her ex.
The directness of that sentiment really stuck with Bull. “Elevator” is about not wanting to waste any more time being consumed by a specific circumstance or person.
