Feel like dancing?
Swiss Lips were 5 guys from Manchester, England that only wanted to make good music but was caught in a major label´s web and couldn´t get out.
Formed in 2011, signed to Sony / Epic Records for a 4 album deal but started getting troubles with their label and it wasn´t until in late 2014 when the band finally were able to cut the ties with Sony Music.
The band had recorded material enough for 2 albums and both were released in 2015, the self titled album Swiss Lips and Overflowing futures.
If you´re into 80´s disco with a modern twist, then you should absolutely check out this album.
Unfortunately in August this year, the band announced their breakup so one could say they had a short and bittersweet career with the taste of the rise and fall of stardom.
Highlights : Wilderness, Grow
