Dunedin surf-psych-rock quartet Koizilla are a well oiled machine specialising in high energy live sets that are always raucous and irresistibly danceable. Having just released their debut album ‘Lazy Hazy’, and recently added a 4th, multi-instrumentalist member to the band, Koizilla are continuing their thorough exploration of the psychedelic world of surf that bands such as Oh Sees and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have begun to unveil. Their songs weave together smooth slow jams and ferocious riffs that rip at an almost un-headbangable pace.
In keeping with their high-output reputation, the band will be releasing another EP mid-december. Their 5th release in two and a half years is titled ‘Warped’ - a covers EP of 6 intricately faithful arrangements of classic tunes from the playstation game Crash Bandicoot 3. Groovy, melodic, and masters of sun-kissed summer anthems, Koizilla are a force to be reckoned with.
