Admitted. My brain feels smashed today. My last week of marathon-gig-watching seems to demand its tribute, but nevermind... This isn't going to hold me back from giving you my newest blurbs on one of this week's absolute highlights and most likely our last 'affordable' chance to see this perform before goes MAJOR!
Newly hatched on 24th January 2010, CHEW LiPS' brand-new album 'Unicorn'( by Family) has made a dramatic entrée in this week's iTunes Album Charts, currently positioning itself on No. 20.
'Unicorn' truly speaks up to its name, opening a door to CHEW LiPS' ultrasonic universe with its avant-garde minimal tunes underlined by subtle pop beats as well as classic elements, framed by Tigs' edgy, yet intriguing vocals, like in 'Play Together' (released on 18th January 2010).
Piano Song, on the contrary, completely captivates one's senses with its beautiful, mellow piano arrangements and Trig's powerful, multifarious voice.
Ranging from edgy basslines, twitched string sounds to classic drumbeat and 80s synthesiser elements, CHEW LiPS 10-track-album is a masterpiece, destined for timelessness and yet, truly capturing today's Zeitgeist.
>> CHEW LiPS will perform @ Korova this Friday. 5adv. Tickets are still available.
