Lip Talk

If Art Rock and Experimental Pop had a baby beast it would be LIP TALK. The four-piece from Brooklyn have cited trucks, scrap metal yards, huge clouds, and secret waterfalls as influences. There's a balance between the gritty and the beautiful. Provocative, angular, edgy, and playful, LIP TALK is sonically and compositionally adventurous. Remember the first time you saw a hot air balloon? You were holding an ice cream cone in one hand, and pointing at the majestic red thing floating in the sky with the other. Imagine - it's a cold day. The kind of brisk, crisp afternoon that has you bundled up from head to toe - swaddled like a newborn baby. Your eyes follow your breath upwards as it drifts then disappears into the cold. "It's there again," you whisper to yourself. Up in the sky the hot air ballon looks like a maraschino cherry plucked off a cheap cocktail against the grey winter sky. You see that there's a patch of blue where the clouds break up and in one corner of the sky you're reminded of the summer. Images of lemonade, diving boards, busted fire hydrants and bright hot sidewalks appear. You're standing there. Looking up at the sky. The hot air ballon begins to spin. Around and around. You hear someone say, "We like to have fun and play something akin to Rock-n-Roll."
