Los Bitchos cover The Champs‘Tequila’ and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s ‘Trapdoor’

The group are joining King Gizzard on their upcoming UK and European tour.

Los Bitchos have announced their new two-track EP ‘Pah!’, featuring covers of The Champs’ ‘Tequila’ and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s ‘Trapdoor’. “We love King Gizzard and ‘Trapdoor’ was a song of theirs that stood out for a cover choice,” Los Bitchos say. “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 continue. “It always feels like it could fall apart at any moment and we wanted to capture that energy on the recording.” Have a listen to the covers below.
