For Immediate Release: April 15, 2015
Brooklyn-based shiny synth-pop / art rock band Lip Talk have just been added to Bowery Ballroom's line-up tonight -- June 13th -- opening for Moon Hooch. The group, consisting of Sarah Pedinotti (synths/vocals), Chris Kyle (guitar), Derek Leslie (bass) and Bryan Bisordi (drums), are also halfway through their June residency at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn.
Lip Talk create provocative, angular, edgy and playful art rock / experimental pop that's sonically and compositionally adventurous. New single "Ghost" premiered through Brooklyn Vegan back in November before the group opened for Interpol at Terminal 5.
The band broke through in 2012 with the release of their debut EP Lucky. EP highlight "Jump Ship" featured guest vocals from Sean Rowe and Phantogram's Sarah Barthel.
"...skittering Deerhoof guitar smash-ups, rap-clatter percussion, and Sarah Pedinotti's chopped vocals made for a triumphantly jittery cut."
- Consequence of Sound
"'MIRRORs' brings together fierce talent, creative thought, and a smattering of unconventional production."
- In Your Speakers
"You'd be hard-pressed to predict the ending of a Lip Talk song, but attempting that guess-work makes the experimental Brooklyn band's music more mysterious and suspenseful."
