Bikini Eyebolt (Jace from DEAD, guitar and vocals) existed in Melbourne from 2007 – 2008. They sound a bit like Wire with East Bay Ray accidently walking into the wrong rehearsal room with a touch of 90’s Am-Rep scuzz. Like a bloody good pop record, with lots of good hooks and nifty ideas but nothing like the condescending fake Gang of Four rubbish you’ve been exposed to of late by the likes of Bloc Party. Or do you actually like the Arctic Monkeys? The band broke up too soon but recorded one album, it deserves a listen.
“god bows to math” meshes the group’s latest works such as the moody “Slow Decline” and “Paper Trails” (featuring vocals and guitar from Postures front-man Michael Havell) with their older work from previous releases.
An amalgamation of the tried and tested with the new and exciting, which has allowed the band to proverbially stretch their legs – allowing for tracks you may not have expected to emerge from the group.
