Today, Seattle garage rock outfit Biblioteka has announced their upcoming three-track EP Kikimora. Accompanying the announcement is their delightfully cacophonous new single, “She’s Bad,” released alongside an ’80s-influenced music video.
The band also announced their full series of tour dates supporting the new EP. It will span both coasts of the United States, along with a detour to Mexico City. Biblioteka’s North American tour dates are provided for you below!
Kikimora (Freakout Records) is the follow-up to 2022’s Pretty Ugly LP, which Backseat Mafia said “crackles with vitality and gets a lot out of a traditional rock band setup.” The album chronicled the band’s personal experiences during the pandemic, with tracks like “Tick Tock” and “Waiting For Nothing” exploring feelings of paranoia due to isolation and drug use.
With upbeat rock sounds akin to The B52’s and Blondie, Biblioteka marries a blend of grunge, punk, and garage to create an array of upbeat punk songs and wistful rock music.
