Chew Lips are a new discovery. Released back in Jan. 2010 (yes, I’m behind the times on this one), today’s sample comes from the opening of their first single “Play Together”. After a very brief synth line sets the tone, we jump right into my selection. I was very surprised by lead singer Tigs’ vocals; a cross between Debbie Harry and Karen O. Once she started singing I was hooked, I really love the sultry quality she brings to the light, fuzzy synth line. The beat carries on throughout the rest of the track and there’s a nice breakdown with amped up vocals. Overall a fun, catchy tune and solid introduction to Chew Lips. Given a few years, these three could be doing some great things.
Let’s try something different today – check out their video for “Play Together” here.
