Thursday, March 18 saw the arrival of UK trio, Chew Lips, to the main stage at Levi's FADER Fort. This being my first opportunity to catch the band I've been raving about for nearly 2 years. With the release of their debut album, Unicorn, earlier this year, their freshman full-length only heightened my anticipation to catch their live show.
There are so many highlights from Chew Lips' album, that it was great to see the songs perforemd in a live space. Between popular cuts like Seven and Karen, frontwoman Tigs commanded the stage wearing blue sparkly hot-pants with a splash of face and shirt glitter to match.
The unique pop tones of each song performed were equally matched with the quirky dance moves the singer executed while strolling across the large stage between bandmates, Will and James. An excellent set full of dancey rad vibes and smiles all around.
If you missed the trio during their Austin action, lucky UK natives will be pleased to know that Chew Lips will set out on a string of dates through May 1. All stops below. (full set of pictures can be viewed here)
