Today, NYC-based electronic punk band Lip Critic announce their signing to Partisan Records, and share new track “It’s The Magic”.
The new single is a mission statement with its dislocating collision of raw-nerved punk and drum and bass tempos that warrants not one, but two drummers, to execute. The accompanying video, directed in a collaboration between the band and Aaron Fenichell, is a visual translation of Lip Critic‘s warped interior world.
The band have already been turning heads all over NYC, where they’ve found themselves on hip-hop, punk and dance bills – simultaneously out of place and right at home on all of them. Frontman Bret Kaser, who carries the energy of Fred Schneider of the B-52’s if he fronted a hardcore band, delivers lyrics about the absurdity of everyday life with hypnotic charisma.
Lip Critic will also be heading to the UK for a run of headline shows this November. Full routing below, and stay tuned for more.
