As you know, tonight (December 7th) we’ve got Bristol’s war-paint wearing electro outfit The Other Tribe doing battle onstage to mark the launch of the end of year double edition Clash Magazine, but, in a daring attempt to overdose you on dance moves we’ve unveiled Manchester’s pop sorcerers Swiss Lips as a secret support act.
The self-made video to early track ‘U Got The Power’ went viral online once uploaded to youtube, clocking up 300,000 views. Now with a deal from Epic/Sony in the bag they’re gearing up to release a debut album next year. First single ‘Danz’ proved further evidence of an ability to craft brilliant synth-pop gems. Read our earlier Track of the Day feature about the track with a few words from the band themselves.
Comparisons have already been made to the likes of MGMT, Passion Pit, and Friendly Fires, so come down tonight to watch these pop sorcerers put you under their spell. Tickets for the show, which takes place at Soup Kitchen in the city’s Northern Quarter, are only £6 and are still available but selling very quickly, so get yours here…
U Got The Power
