“Swiss Lips are a Manchester band who do what all the best Manchester bands have done since New Order” The Guardian

“Books” is gritty in its 80s electro styling, aggressive in its vocals, and speaks to a fiery means of renewal and starting over again” Indie Shuffle

Manchester synth-poppers Swiss Lips have broken up after suffering from “major label syndrome”. To mark the occasion, they will release “Overflowing Futures” on 21st August 2015, a new album of previously unreleased material and remixes. The album is preceded by a free download of the first single ‘Got It Bad’.

 Album highlights include the opener “Lost”, a pulsating electro-pop gem, the massive sing-along anthem “Grow; and a remix of “U Got The Power” by Bastille, featuring their vocalist Dan Smith.

 Following the break-up Swiss Lips have released the statement:

 “We have decided that this is the end for Swiss Lips. The thing we loved the most became a drain, it’s pretty gruesome out there for a small band in 2015. To anyone who cares or cared, we thank you for coming along for the ride, and more importantly for the support you gave, we truly appreciate it and had some amazing times.  All ends bring new beginnings, hopefully see you around. Sam, Luke, Tim, Tom & Nic.”

After gathering huge acclaim for their breakthrough single ‘U Got The Power’ back in 2013, Manchester-based electro-pop band Swiss Lips delivered their infectious self-titled debut album in March 2015 to critical acclaim.

 With comparisons to the likes of Imagine Dragons and Chvrches, Swiss Lips have been one of the most engaging bands in modern British music. Sharing the stage with other established artists such as Ladyhawke, Bastille and Blur, the band were tipped as one of Britain’s hottest prospects going into 2015 having brought a wealth of catchy pop tracks and infectious attitude to go with.

 ‘Overflowing Futures’ is a prime example of a talent that will now not see it’s full potential. Grab a free download of ‘Got It Bad’ on Friday 21st August to mark the untimely breakup of the band and look out for members of Swiss Lips in other music projects to come soon.
