Nick Zinner (of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s) has given Chew Lips’ new single Do You Chew? the remix treatment. Zinner changes the vibes of Chew Lips’ new single by adding synths, giving it a marching band drum rhythm and stripping back lead singer Tigs’ vocal. To accompany the remix, Chew Lips have also assembled an alternative video which contains unseen footage.
London-based dance pop duo Chew Lips have announced the release details for their new single Do You Chew? which will be out on June 11 via their own label Family Records, as part of a new deal with Sony Music. Do You Chew? is lifted from their forthcoming second album.
Listen to Do You Chew? via Soundcloud below.
The band’s debut album ‘Unicorn’ from 2010 was released via Kitsune, but Chew Lips decided to release their record independently this time. They have always had a very DIY attitude, which is something they are plan to continue now that their own label has been signed to Sony Music.
Chew Lips are vocalist / front-woman Tigs and multi-instrumentalist James Watkins. The band formed in 2009 after the pair had been in indie bands but then had the desire to form something new, something pop and something exciting. The band are currently putting the finishing touches to their second, as yet untitled album, which will be released in late 2012.
Watch ‘Salt Air’ lifted from 2010s ‘Unicorn’ below.
