Dunedin surf-psych-rock quartet Koizilla are a well oiled machine specialising in high energy live sets that are always raucous and irresistibly danceable. With their sophomore album ready for release in summer 2020, 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. Last year the band became notorious for ‘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.
"In relatively few years, Koizilla has cemented itself as one of the most consistently amazing bands in Dunedin."
