Available in digital download, streaming, CD and colored vinyl LP (limited edition with 300 different covers!), “Bikini Grill” (Ammonia Records / Tufo Rock Records / Professional Punkers) is The Cleopatra’s fourth album, a potpourri that confirms and renews the band’s style: a mix of punk 77, garage rock and pop punk, supported this time by a less retro sound, more decisive and compact than in the past. To keep everything together, a strong feminine identity and a rock’n’roll and ironic spirit, where the creative and expressive power of femininity is embodied by some anthems (We Strike and We don’t play like men) and by the covers featured in the album, all three by female artists.
Women in rock
How does one sum up this unstoppable feminine force? The Cleopatras are a band of resolute, passionate, tenacious and … ironic women in a rock world that takes itself way too seriously.
Started in 1998, any purist would probably consider them a nightmare … punk, garage rock, surf, pop punk, indie, new wave? … all just meaningless labels as far The Cleopatras are concerned. These women play rock’n’roll, full stop.
