BIZOU is the sum of it's parts: driving post-punk bass + wall of sheeny shoegaze guitars + shifting scales of synths + the propulsive rhythms of darkwave -- all fused together with dreamy vocals ala' Curve, Cranes, Garbage or PJ Harvey... (And this should come as no surprise, given the pedigree of the band -- comprised of members of The Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, Tennis System, Wax Idols, Jennie Vee, and Light FM.)
Like their forefathers Guided By Voices, Spacemen 3, and Galaxie 500 Los Angeles based Absurdist Fiction craft transcendental pop songs rooted in everyday life while looking for something more.
Influenced and inspired by the likes of James Blake, Florence Welch and Nina Simone. Described as "cinematic pop for widescreen ears' by Kevin Bronson of Buzz Bands LA, Daniels voice and style of songwriting garnered quick recognition in the North Bay music scene when he began in 2005. The band currently resides in downtown Los Angeles
