Bikini is an electronic collective from British Columbia, now dispersed across North America. In the wake of their 2010 EP RIPJDS, band members converged from four points of the continent to write and direct their first music video, prep their live show and tour it in select cities. The year culminated with an unforgettable night at the Austin Museum of Art at SXSW, which ended a year of logistical pangs with a old fashioned band brawl. With renewed focus, Bikini’s Aaron Aujla and Kieran Magzul are working on a new LP to be released later this year. To date, the tracks have been built between Aujla’s New York City studio and the forests of northern British Columbia where Magzul treeplants. The yet to be titled LP is set to be finalized later this summer and should be released for the end of 2011.
