My first taste of this band came last May at the Great Escape in Brighton, as one of the members of LoveLikeFire expressed interest in going to see them. Inititally planning to check out another gig, I managed to catch the last few songs of Chew Lips’s set. While it was a bit rough, the band showed plenty of promise, including the instant hit “Solo,” a song that seems to have been borne at an underground European disco.

The three-piece is set to bring their “8-bit casiotone disco drone” to the SXSW this year. Their debut album Unicorn is out now on Family Records. They are currently on the road with Delphic in England, including a gig tomorrow night in Northampton. A complete list of dates can be found on their website.
