introducing... words by Sarah Miniaci

With a cooly stark, almost 70's-eque So-Cal aesthetic and an official!bio that reads "their music is like Salinger on MDMA", Bikini is the latest buzz band to come out of NYC, and not without merit. Their first single, ACheerlaeder, is the kind of disorienting, ambient pop song that leaves your feet begging to be moved in unison with the layered, ghostly harmonies and dream-inducing combination of analog and electronic instrumentation.!RIPJDS (a vowel-less interpretation of Rest in Peace, J.D. Salinger), their first EP, includes the even better American Mourning, irresistible in its lo-fi, breathless arrangement. Needless to say, we’re totally into them. Here the very talented Nigel Diamond and Olivier Olivier (a.k.a. Bikini) answer Burner’s version of the Proust questionnaire...and oh yeah, they’re hilarious too.
