Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #1: Bikini Black Special

This year’s Road To V competition has been lining up pretty well, with some fab entrants that hopefully should make the shortlist and onto the TV.

One of my favourites is Leeds four piece Bikini Black Special, who have a great summery sound, and whilst aren’t necessarily the most innovative band going, their songs are great pop songs that are sure to set V festival on fire should they make it to open up the festival. They combine a touch of Kooks, a touch of Razorlight, as well as lots of other bands that critics always compare new bands to but I haven’t really listened to enough to compare them to.

My favourite is “Do What You Do”, a crowd sing along that is sure to get everyone going, though over on their myspace they really don’t have a dud song.

As they’re a relatively new band they haven’t had much hype around them, though ManchesterMusic.co.uk did describe them as having “60s inspired tunes flavoured with working class grit and just a touch of swagger”.

Hopefully things are looking up for this band – if they don’t make it onto the shortlist I won’t be a happy bunny.
