The US Debut Of 'Little Spaceships' From Australian Garage Rock Four-Piece Lipstereo
By Stevie Connor.
The US debut of "Little Spaceships" from Australian garage rock four-piece Lipstereo.
The infectious indie rock single is off of their debut EP Modern Mythology and is produced by legendary Australian producer Mark Opitz (INXS, AC/DC, The Angels). The track chronicles the relatable feeling of feeling left behind when friends and loved ones move on. Featuring cutting vocals, adrenaline pumping guitar riffs and playful bass.
Lipstereo is a young, four-piece Australian indie rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Formed in 2019, this collection of music tragics bonded together over a mutual obsession of The Strokes, Weezer and Arctic Monkeys' back catalogues. By channeling too much time spent watching worn out Ramones and Blondie VHS tapes as children, Lipstereo creates performances reminiscent of late nights at CBGB, and spilling drinks just a little too cheap on the floor. Lipstereo is composed of frontman Sam Stranges on vocals and rhythm guitar, Andrew Stainsby on lead guitar, Tage Hosking-Gregory on bass and Jesse Porter on drums. Playing all over pre-lockdown Melbourne in 2019 and 2020 at their high-energy live gigs, Lipstereo fuses loud guitars with a post punk songwriting sensibility to create music that in a parallel universe, would be on Phil Spector's Spotify playlist
Lipstereo is one of Melbourne's most promising alternative bands, having recently released their four track debut EP, Modern Mythology, at Thirty Mill Studios with top Australian record producer, Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS, Cold Chisel) and engineer Colin Wynne (INXS, Jeff Lang, The Casanovas). The band has since received acclaim from Rolling Stone Australia, NME, ABC Rage and Noise 11 to name a few. Their single "Little Spaceships" chronicles the relatable feeling of feeling left behind when friends and loved ones move on.
