L I P S
Equal parts solemn and hopeful L I P S are a four-piece from Falmouth, Cornwall. Teetering on the edge of woozy shoegaze and understated dream-pop,they balance it all out with pinpoint songwriting, moving live shows and a consistently keen eye for aesthetics.
One of their most recent singles, ‘Apartment’, represents a progression for the band into a well-oiled and focused, reverberant machine. The instrumentation is layered meticulously, the vocals drift elegantly with 80’s pop inspired melodies and the coda crushes balefully. Given the recent response to ‘Apartment’, L I P S show no signs of slowing down with another single on the horizon and solid support from BBC Introducing. They sound right at home gracing the early-morning streets of a sleepy city.
