Lip Filler Sign to Chess Club Records

Rising West London five-piece Lip Filler have signed to Chess Club Records and this week release their new single “Haircut” – produced by St Francis Hotel (Greentea Peng, Michael Kiwanuka).

Originally from the south west of England, the band consisting of vocalist and keys player George, guitarists Jude and Verity, bassist Theo, and drummer Nate, Lip Filler all now reside in a flat together above a chicken shop in Shepherds Bush.

It’s within this flat that Lip Filler’s sound and ethos started to brew. A distinctive concoction of caustic indie rock and raucous, noughties-leaning dance-punk, Lip Filler are here to shake things up.

New single “Haircut” – their first for Chess Club Records (Alfie Templeman, Phoebe Green, Coach Party) is an acute examination of the overstimulating nature of modern technology and the process of adjusting to life in London “Minesweeper of a schedule / This city kinda sucks”.

“‘Haircut’ is about adapting to a metropolitan lifestyle and constantly being over-stimulated and confronted by technology. We all moved to London at a weird and unwelcoming time, so we feel these lyrics resemble the headspace we approached after moving to the city.”
