Sexy Bicycle is a more pop-based band where the guitars and tambourines come in clear, but the vocals are moans drenched in reverb and other effects. The music has a lot of instrumentation for a duo, decorated with the sound of running water and cavernous trumpet. The Barcelona group is Nika Elia & Nicolás Manzano and they have one EP out now called The River. There’s something bright and relaxing to it, but at the same time spooky and haunting. It’s an excellent four track release that shows a lot of potential, which is great, because the group is working on an LP now.
