Bands to Watch #105: Chew Lips

Chew Lips (side)Chew Lips are an electro-pop outfit hailing from London. The disco trio only started out last spring, but since their 2008 formation, the Lips have been storming the musical world at lightning speed. They’ve already supported The Virgins and Howling Bells live, and were even offered a coveted slot at the BBC Electric Proms last October. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s not bad going considering it hasn’t even been a year since the band played their first ever gig at a house party in New Cross..

While it’s undeniable that electro-pop is an incredibly overpopulated musical genre at the moment – there’s absolutely no reason why this glittery troupe cannot be considered on a par with the other awesome disco acts out there right now – such as Defend Moscow, La Roux and Little Boots. Front lady Tigg certainly possesses a sparky Karen-O ability to hold a stage, and her silky voice perfectly compliments the band’s additively robotic beats provided by Chew Lips’ two other members, ‘Will and James’.

Check out this super-synth band’s MySpace page now, and while you’re there, why not have a listen to a selection of top Chew Lips’ tracks including the retro games-console sounding ‘Solo’ and the icy-cool ‘Salt Air’ .
