As the brilliantly named Bikini Islands are back from their short pandemic-fueled hiatus with more deliciously lip-licking music after 2019’s ‘Vines‘ and ‘Psycho Killer‘, they have us looking around for potential slimy creatures roaming around unexpectedly on their new slick single named ‘Midnight Lizard‘.
Bikini Islands is a super chilled and highly unpretentious four-piece Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based indie garage-rock band. Their style is a blend of steel city edge and surfer mellow, as they make thrilling music that reminds you of simpler times.
On a riff-laden track with much to like on this tv-swirling song that wraps a palm-tree blowing freshness into your awaiting mind, you quickly feel the weekend beach smooth-talking track flow beautifully into your atmosphere. This is a song to turn up loud and just let go – as the solos are something specially mixed to please – combined with confident vocals that keep things sweet and pure for the gasping soul to lap up thirstily.
‘Midnight Lizard‘ from the pulsating Pittsburgh garage-rockers called Bikini Islands, is that awesome catchy track you aren’t quite sure what is all about, but you love it anyway. They have a very likable style and you feel enraptured by the soundscape provided and feel like they would be an epic band to watch live. As long as there are no slippery lizards crawling around at the gig however.
