Chew Lips Track of the Day - Solo
The electro blanket is set to immerse us all in 2009 but with London trio Chew Lips heading the queue of electro–pushers vying for acceptance, it’s only a matter of time until we all conform to their will.
Chew Lips are still in their infancy; born early in March 2008 they have had a hasty rise to prominence. The band has already been hailed for raucous live shows, arduously stalking stages all over London. Their brand of addictive tantalising electro-sparse-pop is scuzzy, yet delectably danceable.
Debut single Solo sees frontwoman Tigs weave her angst-laden vocals into a bed of swirling, spacey electro beats, glitches and bleeps akin to Hot Chip, in a truly beatific way. Tigs’ unyielding, heartfelt pleas resonate like the refulgent Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Solo wraps itself around you with its melancholic drone electro-pop devilry, somewhat sublimely and concludes, achingly prematurely, in a wave-like crescendo of hastened beats and shrieked vocals,.
Beware Karen O, we may have a British usurper to your throne.
