BIOGRAPHY

It begins with an electronic sizzling sound reminding a Harley at ease but, in fact, «Good Morning» turns to be a garage-pop rush melting vintage guitars and up to date electro music, closer to a face-lifted Carnaby Street than a thirsty Death Valley. Laetitia Sheriff throws some electric “yeah”. «Get Down» attacks with a flood of mambo percussions, strikes with a Kinks' style riff in their You really got me chapter, and go into funny samples. But the Bikini can also play classy. Like «Strange Day» who displays strings and vibes to give a torch song in a James Bond way. Metaphysical questioning ? «Où vont les cons» (where do the jerks go) are asking themselves Fred Gransard and Michaël Furnon (fan and friend of the band) with this ironical detachment borrowed to Dutronc. Were Hip Hop rythm sessions born in the sixties ? Does the Beach Boys' polyphonies bear intense electronic ? Is it fundamental to know the steps to dance ? Is it really fair to hire the 8 childrens of the band members to do the chorus for a song called «The old school» ? All the answers are in The Full Album. And, right before silence falls again on the dune, we'll have plenty of time to meditate on those disturbing revelations rooling on moisty guitar surf rythms of The Race.
