Los Bitchos have released a new two-track EP, PAH!, which sees them covering the Champs’ ‘Tequila’ and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s ‘Trapdoor’. Take a listen below.
In a statement about the new release, Los Bitchos said: “We love King Gizzard and ‘Trapdoor’ was a song of theirs that stood out for a cover choice. It was that repetitive hook of ‘Trapdoor, trapdoor, trapdoor’ that we found so compelling and trippy. It also translates great to a guitar hook! Our version starts off feeling like a hazy summer’s day and escalates in a frantic tempo change that suggests all is not what it seems and trouble could be brewing… Hehe…”
“‘Tequila’ has been the joyfully unhinged ending to our set for the past year,” they added. “It always feels like it could fall apart at any moment and we wanted to capture that energy on the recording.”
Los Bitchos released their debut LP, Let The Festivities Begin!, last year. Revisit our Artist Spotlight interview with Los Bitchos.
