There is nothing quite usual about Chew Lips. Not their way of making
music, or their live shows, or indeed, their inception.
When the vocalist Tigs and multi-instrumentalists James Watkins and
Will McDonald decided to start making music together they had only one
edict – not to sound like “just another guitar band”.
The result was the organic and purely accidental evolution of their
current, electronically enhanced sound.
Every song sounds like it could be a planet-bestriding, galaxy
swallowing pop smash, with Will and James’ gorgeously whirling and
mutating Casiotone / guitar / bass / drum machine attack providing
the perfect backdrop when the amazing frontwoman Tigs’s voice soars,
swoops and dips precipitously and smoulders beautifully.
With their first single ‘Solo’ on Kitsuné, Chew Lips alternately capture the
yearning, impatience, beauty, confusion and impermanence of youth, with
Tigs summing up the hopes and dreams of a whole generation with a fistpumping
battlecry. This is pop music alright, but pop with a gloriously vivid,
almost cinematic sweep, as well as a human heart, filled with a very real
sense of longing and desire, in amidst the shiny, clattering electronica.
French producer Tepr, well known for his remix of Yelle’s ‘A Cause des
Garçons’, has made the song a dancefloor anthem, while David Sugar
smoothly delivers an uplifted version of the track.
