There’s something sexy about “American Mourning” by Bikini. You almost feel a little strange for liking it so much. It may be the continuous and occasional monotony of the song’s electronic beats. Or it could be the playful vocal pattern in the verse. Whatever it is, it’s intoxicating. It’s like a car crash — you want to look away, but you can’t. It’s fascinating.
Then again, you get that sometimes with dance-pop. The genre is known for being one to get feet moving, heads bobbing, whatever. And Bikini have this style of music down.
Bikini is a dance-pop duo from New York City, and their music is just as heavy with the electronic beats a it is with catchy vocal hooks. Their latest is an EP called RIP JDS and you can find it on Lefse Records.
