When Bikini Body first forged post-gutter skunk funk in the fires of Edinburgh’s musical underbelly back in 2019, little did they know of the power it would come to wield.
Since then, they’ve played shows across the UK with the likes of Deadletter, Silverbacks, Los Bitchos and Pussy Riot; toured Scotland with The Bug Club; and chivvied up festival crowds, most recently at Manchester’s Fair Play and Edinburgh Psych Fest.
Everywhere they’ve gone, Bikini Body have found the message of post-gutter skunk funk has resonated, despite they themselves not quite knowing what it means. Whatever it means, if you like the danceable punk of ESG, Viagra Boys, Squid and Liquid Liquid, vocals informed by the likes of the Slits, Bush Tetras and X-Ray Spex, and an objectively “good” time, then Bikini Body is for you.
Keep an eye for new music soon from Bikini Body in the coming weeks!
