The Codfather Recommends: Bikini Death Race

“A driving out of senselessness through senselessness!”

Bikini Death Race

Catchy electroclash beats and post punk riffs that really caught my attention and will no doubt get this Italian-Yorkshire two-piece stuck on your most played.  Their album ‘Party Animals’ is a nine track commentary of everyday life down the rabbit hole which will pogo through your brain like Zebedee on Red Bull. 

Check them out on Bandcamp and Facebook

For fans of: The Ramones, Le Tigre, Kap Bambino, Crystal Castles, Tuxedo Moon, Ladytron
