Bleeding terror right through, SINGLE: BIKINI CIGARETTE – War
by Walter Price
There’s a social conscience behind the low slung thunder of Portugal’s Bikini Cigarette’s recent track, “War”. A purposeful storyline that will twist you into a vigor.
In a message sent to the GTC and also posted on YouTube, the band says of the single, “War is a song about the anger that most young Soldiers feel when they are summoned to go to war, fighting for a cause they don’t believe in. It’s structured in 3 different narratives that approach different moments in the theater of war, evoking the strange sensations that these Soldiers go through until they reach the climax of an irreversible trauma. Heavy guitar riffs & powerful drums blended with heartfelt vocal melodies are the perfect match to deliver this important message to a World who’s begging for Peace!”
So, if you want your rock n roll heavy and gnarly intertwined with a tactile message, then this track, this band are going to fuel your thought-provoking playlists. And you can stream it and watch the brilliant film, produced by Jorge Silva and Fernando Madureira and starring Pedro Soares as the General, now at Global Texan.
