LOS BITCHES – ” Let The Festivities Begin! “

Posted: February 8, 2022 in MUSIC

Los Bitchos are prepared to blow your pants clean off this coming February, and they don’t need to utter a word to do it. The pan-continental quartet will share their instrumental debut album “Let The Festivities Begin!” on 4th February and follow it up with a tour that must be attended to be believed. At their over-attended set at this year’s Wide Awake festival, the instrumental band well and truly staked themselves as a live favourite, a title that will soon be matched by their debut album. 

Produced by Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand). Panthers prowling through a desert. Cowgirls swaggering into a saloon and kicking up dust. Riding shotgun with a Tarantino heroine. Having the fiesta of your lives under a giant piñata with all your friends. Los Bitchos’ hallucinatory surf-exotica is as evocative as it is playful: the London-based pan-continental group could well be your new favourite party band with their instrumental voyages that are the soundtrack to setting alight to a row of flaming sambucas and losing yourself to the night. They’ve got a bun-tight knack for a groove – and they’ve got the best fringes in rock’n’roll too.

Serra Petale (guitar), Agustina Ruiz (keytar), Josefine Jonsson (bass) and Nic Crawshaw (drums) hail from different parts of the world but met via all-night house parties, or through friends, in London. Their unique sound binds them together, though, taking in a retrofuturistic blend of Peruvian chicha, Argentine cumbia, Turkish psych and surf guitars. They are London’s answer to Khruangbin, if Khruangbin spent all weekend getting slammed on cheap tequila in.

Reviews will rave, fans will assemble and the Los Bitchos name will be on everyone’s lips in 2022: their music is simply too good for it not to be so.
