Recipients of the 2012 Silver Scroll for the dreamy 'Everything To Me', the multitalented Lips gang fronted by Stephanie Brown and Fen Ikner have dropped a jagged lil pop pill in the form of new single 'Your Deodorant Doesn't Work'. Served up with a stylishly creepy video from the ever-productive Sports Team crew and created with the support of NZ On Air, body odour issues are merely the tip of the iceberg in Lips' spiky and jubilant jam. The song 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," with snarling lines like "no I haven't heard of your band" sure to hit hard for some listeners. Sports Team's surprisingly violent visuals are like a stage magician's nightmare, seemingly drawing upon the lurid, blood-drenched cinematic tradition of Italian Giallo horror and concluding with an impish, razor sharp twist. Enjoy the wild ride of 'Your Deodorant Doesn't Work' and look forward to Lips' long awaited debut album I Don't Know Why I Do Anything, featuring new bandmates Ruby Walsh and Maude Morris, launching on 16th July...
