When projects form, there’s a good chance they could be filled with members of more prominent groups. LA’s Bizou is no exception to that rule. With a new EP Stillifeburning coming in mid April, the group made up of members from Smashing Pumpkins, Wax Idols, Light FM and Glaare should hit hard to whoever hears them. Their lead single “Crashing Sky” will help, as its new wave graces give their sound plenty to look forward to.
Opening with plenty of Echo & the Bunnymen tones, the shoegaze soaked track has these darkwave sounds that mix perfectly with the deadpan vocals. The synths and the live instruments remind you of radio in the eighties, while the overall tone is original. There’s something catchy that’s hard to shake from the group’s infectious songwriting that you can’t help but want to dance in the dark to.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The single can be streamed on all streaming sites. Stillifeburning can be preordered directly from Bandcamp ahead of its April 10 release.
