“What is lost cannot be found again,” Marisa Prietto declares serenely amid the shadowy passages of Bizou’s 2018 single “Superstition.” The line is especially apt as the former Wax Idols vocalist is accompanied by a group of all-stars in Bizou. Bassist/backup singer Nicole Fiorentino used to anchor the propulsive grooves of the great, lost post-punk band Radio Vago before going on to work with The Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, and The Cold and Lovely. Fiorentino has played with the indie-rock group Light FM alongside guitarist-singer-programmer Josiah Mazzaschi and guitarist Nicki Nevlin, who are also members of Bizou. Drummer Erin Tidwell (ex–Tennis System) rounds out Bizou’s lineup. Despite that impressive collective history, Bizou are all about looking forward on their 2019 self-titled EP on such goth-laced tracks as “Love Addicts” and the sparkling shimmers of “Andromeda.” With DZR.
