Lips have a new album coming out! It's called I Don't Know Why I Do Anything, and it's set for release on July 16th. To accompany this announcement they have a new video. This is Your Deodorant Doesn't Work:
Video directed by Sports Team. DP: Abigail Egden Lips' head by Paul Lewis Made with support from NZ On Air.
Lips is a four-piece musical project led by Steph Brown and Fen Ikner, and based in Tāmaki Makaurau. Your Deodorant Doesn't Work is a song born in the early days of Aotearoa's response to Covid-19.
Lips spent their time watching standup specials, Spike Jonze's Beastie Boys Story, and the 1PM briefings from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. In the microcosm of their family’s home, against the backdrop of an uncertain future, these three inspirations whipped through their dreams at night and wound themselves into a song. Your Deodorant Doesn't Work tells the story of someone entering into a misjudged affair, immediately and inelegantly backing out, and later wondering how other people might have handled themselves and the situation more expertly. “Wonder what Jacinda would do? What would Michelle Obama do? What would Cher do?”
Keep an eye out for I Don't Know Why I Do Anything on July 16th.
