LIPSTEREO is a young, four-piece 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 channelling 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 completed their four-track debut EP titled ‘Modern Mythology’ at Thirty Mill Studios Melbourne with top Australian record producer, Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS, Cold Chisel) and engineer Colin Wynne (INXS, Jeff Lang, The Casanovas).
The first radio single to be released from the EP ‘Stop’, grabs the listener by the throat and takes them on a thrilling two minute and eight second rollercoaster ride!
The band is currently hard at work on a second EP, with plans to release in late 2022. For updates, follow the band on social media @lipstereo on Facebook, @lipstereoband on Instagram and Spotify https://open.spotify.com/artist/3f3RUPvDMW6bI9fQW5ICMx
The band’s first radio single ‘Stop’, will be simultaneously released in Australia, USA and Canada Friday 24th June 2022 on the newly established independent record label, Pop Preservation Society.
