Bikini Trill is an LA based, surf-pop trio formed in 2017 by vocalist Lauren 'LJ' Johnson, bassist, Kourosh 'Roach' Poursalehi, and guitarist, Tony Stern. The group seamlessly blend electronic, hip-hop drums, skank island guitars, and dreamy vocal melodies to create a sound that has been compared to the likes of Santigold, Sublime, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
In the Spring of 2017 the band played their very first set of live shows at SXSW in Austin, TX. In the fall of 2018 Bikini Trill embarked on their first nationwide tour opening for New Politics and The Score followed by a second nationwide tour in support of Reel Big Fish. The summer of 2019 saw the bands first nationwide amphitheater tour with 311, The Dirty Heads, Interrupters, and Dreamers and included performances at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Austin 360 Amphitheater, and Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.
Currently, Bikini Trill is gearing up for the release of 'Outlaw'- the first of ten singles slated for a 2020 release. ‘Outlaw’ grooves with fat dubby bass, island guitar, trap beats, and catchy vocal melodies. The song was written with Nick Bailey (Maroon 5 ‘Visions’) and was inspired by the bands experiences out on the road.
'Outlaw' will be available everywhere on March 13th, 2020.
