A NYC band you shouldn't forget about: Lips

A NYC band you shouldn't forget about: Lips

We missed to highlight Lips' new EP "Ghosts and Demons," dated December 2013, even though the artist got some exposure from us for making it in our latest Year End Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists. The brainchild of New Zealand native Stephanie Brown, Lips plays edgy, keyboard driven synth-pop of the non-breezy/summery variety. The signature tension and "noir" elements in her tracks are always counterbalanced by melodies that are memorable and sophisticated. Opening single and EP title track "Ghost Demons" is a suspenceful number where stomping distorted drums and a simple (but cool) synth arrangement are carried by the vocals towards a chorus where Stephanie's voice is left alone, singing about loneliness. Fans of Bjork and Lykke Li will find something very interesting here, and not just because of the cute foreign accent.
