Skipping along on a circular guitar riff, The Belair Lip Bombs’ ‘Out of Here’ is a bright and effervescent indie pop blast that high steps its way into your head and stays to pogo blithely in a reverie. Dappling guitars form the spine to the track, providing a scaling, fuzzy layer all the way to the sudden stop. This is a single of some stature.
The Belair Lip Bombs guitarist/vocalist Maisie Everett says:
Out Of Here is about lust, forbidden love, and the confusion of relationships in your early twenties. The song was written at band practice one night and we knew straight away it was going to be our first single after a long hiatus.
Everett’s voice is filled with a yearning and want: there is a sense of urgency and desire. You can download/stream the single here or through the link below:
The Belair Lip Bombs are made up of Everett (who also plays bass in rising punk trio CLAMM – see my review of their single ‘Liar’ here), guitarist Mike Bradvica, bassist Jimmy Droughton and drummer Liam de Bruin (who also makes electronic music under his own name for the Melbourne label Heard & Felt).
The delightfully-named band is launching ‘Out of Here’ on Thursday July 29 at Northcote Social Club with support from Delivery and Mug – tickets here.
